Use an online calculator to find out our individual carbon footprints.
Make appropriate personal choices in order to be more sustainable in our everyday lives.
Create a Prezi presentation describing your plan of action to become more earth-friendly.
What is Sustainability?
Changing our way of living in order to improve the future.
“ Making the world a better place”
“ Being nice to all your neighbors, including trees”
“ Taking care of the air, water, and land”
The 5 Main Sections of Sustainability
Things that are plugged in, such as the television, require electricity
The more electricity we use, the more we are hurting the earth
Food and Drink
Foods that are processed and have lots of packaging, such as hot dogs, are less earth-friendly than fruits and vegetables
We can become more sustainable by eating healthy, natural foods.
We use water to do many things, such as wash dishes, do laundry, go swimming, and shower.
Each time we use water, we are reducing the water that the earth has.
We use transportation, like cars, bikes, buses, trains, airplanes, to get from place to place.
The more we can get around by not using cars, the more sustainable we will be.
Many plants and animals are working hard to keep our earth healthy and clean
It is up to us to not destroy trees, plants, and habitats.
What is a Carbon Footprint?
The more you do things that use up resources (such as take long showers, drive in a car, keep the sink running, and keep the lights turned on) the more Carbon Dioxide you use and the higher your carbon footprint will be.
We want to have LOW Carbon Footprints to help keep our earth healthy.
