Ashford SCI 207 Week 5 Discussion 1 Ecological Footprint and Comparison
Ecological Footprint and Comparison [WLOs: 2] [CLOs: 3, 6]. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 9 of the Contemporary Environmental Issues text. Also, view these two
short videos on reducing waste: Disposability Consciousness and Two Adults, Two Kids, Zero Waste | Bea Johnson | TEDxFoggyBottom.
In this week’s discussion, you will recalculate your ecological footprints from Week 1, and determine whether or not your actions taken over the past five weeks have made a difference in the size of your footprints. You will also have the opportunity to discuss additional actions one might take to live more sustainably. In particular, you are encouraged to focus on techniques for reducing the amount of waste that we generate in our everyday lives.
Complete the following:
First, redo your three footprint calculations from Week 1: your ecological footprint (What Is Your
Ecological Footprint?); your household carbon emissions footprint (Carbon Footprint Calculator), and
your daily water footprint (Water Footprint Calculator).
Compare your new answers from the ones you obtained back in Week 1. How did the footprints change,
if at all? Do you suspect that any changes are the result of the actions you took? Why or why not?
