I just took an on-line ecological footprint calculator and my results were extremely high, meaning extremely horrible.
One suggestion the ecological website suggested was to cut my animal consumption in half.
They also suggested that I should buy less packed products and more 100 percent post-consumer recycled content.
Another way to reduce my ecological footprint is to ride public transportation more and carpool more.
An easy thing I need to start doing to help our environment is to recycle more. If I see trash on the side of the road I should pick it up and either recycle it or through it away.
I also need to start spending more money on fresh produce, and less on pre-packaged freezer items.
I need to stop using so much electricity, water, and gas.
They said if everyone used/wasted as much energy as me, we would need 4.3 earths to supply adequate resources!
I pledge to use less of our planet's energy starting today! I will try not to waste too much energy and resources anymore. I hope to get my ecological footprint very small as soon as possible.
