Find Out Your Ecological Footprint

Yikes! I tend to think of myself as a fairly green person. I recycle basically anything that can be recycled, purchase organic food or recycled products when available and I try to be as energy efficient as possible. I even consider the fact that I wash my hair every other day to be "green". (Probably a stretch.) However, I just took the Ecological Footprint" quiz at and my results are a little scary. Apparently, if everyone on the planet lived my lifestyle, we would need 5.66 Earths to accommodate!

While that's scary, I think it's definitely a good thing to know. Even though I am below the national average in most categories. Ignorance is not always bliss. Fortunately they accompany your brutally honest results with the following tips on how to reduce your footprint...

To be informed, take the Ecological Footprint quiz yourself. And if you're not too shy about your results feel free to post them in the comments section below. If you're embarrassed, vow to choose at least three reduction tips to focus on. Good Luck!
