Yup, this is the latest discovery i have made about myself. Before we get more into this here is some background.
This quarter i am taking a “Marketing Strategies for Sustainability” class. As part of the class requirements we will be blogging our personal efforts to reduce our ecological footprint. So in a similar effort to preserve the finite amount of web space i own, i am integrating this assignment in marketwala as a category called “Marketing 488”
Ok now back to business. So as i was saying if the whole world were to live my lifestyle we would need 3 planets to support us. Now now, before you start to tell me i am killing the planet i would like you to take the test and find out how you are doing. If you take the test post the results in comments, i will try to post results from the rest of our class to add some frame of reference to this number.
Quick Stats for me:
- If everyone had my lifestyle we would need 3.2 planets (yes i rounded it down)
- It take 14.2 acres of earth’s productive area to support me
- The 14.2 acres generates 15.3 tons of carbon dioxide
- Most of my land consumption comes from Energy land
