Every summer I tend to get into sustainability. Although, this summer it feels like I never fell into that mindset of trying to be environmentally conscious. Therefore, I am glad the environmental justice group had us take the carbon footprint quiz. It is upsetting that just by myself and my daily habits would need 3.6 Earths. That is 2.6 more than what I have got. Even being vegetarian and not driving far weekly, I still produce a significant amount of waste and emissions. It makes me wonder what the total amount of Earths it would be for all the people who may not care about the environment.
After that quiz, I honestly felt a bit of disappointment in myself for not taking time this summer to be environmentally friendly. But now, I am more motivated to be more aware of my purchases and things in my daily life that might have some negative impact on the environment.
