The Ecological Footprint Quiz is an interesting way of confronting yourself with your own lifestyle.
Ecological Footprints document a given population's consumption and waste production expressed in biologically productive land and ocean areas necessary to maintain these services.
The quiz makes this personal. In other words, how much strain do you put on the earth's resources?
By aggregating data on the consumption of various resources and on the ability of the earth to provide them, the Ecological Footprint accounts provide a means to compare various components of consumption and ultimately serve as an indicator of sustainability - or, in the case of deficits, of unsustainability.
My result: If everyone lived like me, we would need 1.8 planets.
And the weird thing is, I feel I'm doing pretty good. Only 1.8 planets!
