a good introduction to the concept of ecological footprint
While neither highly accurate or in depth- it was short and to the point. - m.k. , posted 08/21/06

Worth a look - the shifts this awareness can precipitate are significant.
Me? ..humble existence yet STILL above the 'line'! Very intriguing:

FOOD 1.1
MOBILITY 0.2
SHELTER 0.7
GOODS/SERVICES 0.7
TOTAL FOOTPRINT 2.7 (GLOBAL HECTARES)

IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 8.8 GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.

IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU (me), WE WOULD NEED 1.5 PLANETS.

good for awareness
I am currently a 7. I think the flying killed me. I fly back to Olympia 2-3 times a year, but how can I not? I love working for Outward Bound in Florida, but I'm not crazy about living here. - Unsubscribed , posted 04/22/06

a neophytes game.
but probably has merit. not very accurate for reasons explained by others. i was a 7. seems i eat too much packaged food. though i have reduced my consumption of processed foods, even the fresh produce is packaged now. the question was PACKAGED or PREPARED foods. also this answer varies seasonally. during garden season this would be very little compared to winter. a realistic answer is subjective. but the quiz was free so what da heck. - Unsubscribed , posted 03/24/06

nice idea
way too vague thus inaccurate. however, might be useful to help noneco-conscious people to become more aware of their wasteful lifestyle. - gary , posted 03/22/06

Good start
I'll give it 3 stars, as it has had some valued impact in stimulating conversation about your consumption patterns. It isn't at all smart/sensitive about intentional community living, which often involves a lot of sharing and reduced consumpation. - Craig , posted 03/22/06

Incomplete ecofootprint
The best I could do was 6 because there is nothing for building an Earthship and totally solar home, which should lower footprint a lot by using indigenous and re-used, recycled materials . Also, no CO2 from home power. How about how many kids you have. My one should be much better than someone with two or more. Helping the ecology , not status quo or hurting it. - Michael , posted 03/22/06
