Ecological Footprint

footprint1This footprint was calculated based on Harbin, China.

According to the calculator, my lifestyle would require the regenerative capacity of 0.8 planets each year and 1.5 global hectares productive area to support.

I have tried different methods to reduce it.

Scenario 1:  Avoid eating meat and fish, decreasing my expenditure on clothing and entertainment. By doing this I can reduce 0.2 global hectares area to support my lifestyle.

Scenario 2: Moving to a smaller apartment and use buses or bikes to replace car. Besides, reducing the times I took airplane for traveling every year. As a result, I need only 0.7 planets and 1.3 global hectares each year.
