Reducing Our Ecological Footprint
Our 'ecological footprint' is the measurement of what we consume and the 'footprint' it leaves on the earth. A person who drives 50 miles to work everyday and eats at fast food restaurants 5 times a week has a larger ecological footprint than a person who takes the bus to work and cooks vegetarian meals at home. If all of us lived like the first person in our example, we would need roughly 7 Earths to support us sustainably, or forever. So, let's take an honest look at our level of consumption:
Begin thinking of ways to reduce what you consume: bring canvas bags to the grocery store, buy yourself a travel mug and bring it with you to the coffee shop. Eat one less meat meal per week and buy local food whenever possible. If just ten percent of us where to take these simple steps we would make a substantial difference.
