WHERE TO BEGIN?

With increased awareness of our individual carbon footprint, it can be hard to know where to start.

You might decide to eat for the planet (check out our guide here), only to get bombarded with news about the high water requirements of Almond Milk (which is still less than Dairy by the way!).

In a world full of climate-misinformation, we need to choose our battles.

To begin, check out the science and find out what area in your life needs addressing first:

FIND OUT YOUR FOOTPRINT

To set a personal baseline, calculate your current ecological footprint.

The good people over at the Global Footprint Network have made it easier then ever.

Instead of just looking at carbon footprints alone, they consider all the ecological resources which help fulfill our human needs. This is then used to calculate an individuals Ecological Footprint. Just use their Footprint Calculator to find out where to begin:

Once you fill in the quiz, be sure to check which consumption category contributes most to your ecological footprint.

Now you know where to start, what are you waiting for!
