Happy Earth Day from Global Footprint Network

If everyone lived like you, how many Earths would it take to support your lifestyle? This Earth Day, Global Footprint Network is pleased to announce a new video and Footprint Calculator for the U.S., two tools to help Americans see how their living habits relate to their use of the planet’s resources.

A One Planet Life

What is your Ecological Footprint?
What can you do to get closer to living within the means of one planet? We’ve built this Ecological Footprint calculator to help you find out. Built in partnership with Free Range Studios (creators of the viral film the Meatrix and The Story of Stuff), the calculator is the latest phase of Global Footprint Network’s rollout of a global calculator that will provide people around the world with an interactive, informative tool for exploring and reducing their Footprints. An Australia calculator was launched in March, and a Canadian version is planned for later this year.

Global Footprint Network is inviting corporate, government, and NGO partners to help launch the calculator world-wide.  The calculator can be customized for specific organizations and geographical areas. Please contact Susan Burns if you would like to be involved or would like the calculator customized for your organization.
