Ecological Footprint: María Angelica Mejia (Colombia)

Maria needs 0.9 Planet Earths (and how does she manage that?)

Global Footprint Maria Mejia

 

I need 0.9 Planet Earths. How do I do to get this score?

  • I eat daily chicken instead of beef, but I drink milk, I eat eggs and chees almost every day. Bogota is surrounded by small farmer towns the transportation of the food is not far from the city.
  • I use daily Transmilenio, the public transport of Bogota, Colombia. My family has just 1 car in which we use only some weekends and the most of the time we use it, we carry the 4 family members simultaneously. Also, I travel by plane only about 2 times a year.
  • I live with my parents and my brother, and we try to recycle, we separate the paper and plastics materials, we buy cloths just once a year and we change the electro domestics when the other one does not work anymore.
