Happy Earth Day!
Happy Earth Day! I thought you might enjoy logging onto the following websites and taking their quizzes to calculate your personal Global footprint. How much land area does it take to support your lifestyle? I thought I was very conservative...I recycle, I use low energy bulbs, I only run the dishwasher and washing machine on full loads, I eat very little meat, I primarily buy local produce, I only live a mile away from my office...but I was shocked to see it takes 3 planet earths to support my lifestyle! Yikes! I think you'll find both sites interesting and informative: www.footprintnetwork.org www.myfootprint.org Thanks. Have a Happy Earth Day! Plant a tree!
