Find your ecological footprint!

I chose the website, It may be based in the UK, but I'm quite sure the amount of my ecological footprint in the UK would be very similar for one US based, but I chose this website because the website layout is very well along with the questions, they are very simple and detailed. The process isn't too long and they give a variety of answers that are reasonable and easy to answer. I learned that I use a lot of resources from using this calculator.
