Ecological Footprint

ecological footprint

The ecological footprint is calculated based in India

So, it takes 1.1 Global hectares of Earth’s productive area to support my lifestyle. It requires a regenerative capacity of 0.6 planets each year if everyone lived like me.

So I tried reducing my footprint by moving into a smaller house, use public transport instead of a car and abstain from eating meat and fish. So that reduces my footprint from 1.1  to 0.9 global hectares and the required regenerative capacity would be 0.5 planets per year.
