The ecological carbon footprint is a method used to determine how much humans depend on natural resources. This is calculated by determining how much of the environment is needed to sustain an individual’s lifestyle. If everyone lived as you do, how many Earths would we need to sustain everyone?

The simulator linked below really puts in perspective different ways where you can improve and what exactly you are contributing to the Earth that can be detrimental.
