Transcript of "Ecofootpirnt Pendulum"

  1. 1. <ul><li>“ Every organism, </li></ul><ul><li>be it a bacterium, whale or person, </li></ul><ul><li>has an impact on the earth. </li></ul><ul><li>We all rely upon the products and services of nature, both to supply us with raw materials and to assimilate our wastes.” </li></ul><ul><li>-Nicky Chambers et al. </li></ul>
  2. 3. Our Ecological Footprint: <ul><li>What it is: </li></ul>
  3. 4. Our Ecological Footprint: <ul><li>What it is: The land needed to support our current lifestyle of consumption, measured in land area per year </li></ul>
  4. 5. Our Ecological Footprint: <ul><li>What it is: The land needed to support our current lifestyle of consumption, measured in land area per year </li></ul><ul><li>What it isn’t: </li></ul>
  5. 6. Our Ecological Footprint: <ul><li>What it is: The land needed to support our current lifestyle of consumption, measured in land area per year </li></ul><ul><li>What it isn’t: It isn’t an indicator of social or economic well-being </li></ul>
  6. 7. Why use the Footprint? <ul><li>Addresses constraints of measuring resources with monetary value </li></ul><ul><li>Respects limiting factor of nature’s productivity </li></ul><ul><li>Decision making tool to compare and contrast alternative practices </li></ul><ul><li>Easily understandable, interactive and FUN! </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>www.earthday.net/footprint </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Has been adopted on many levels: </li></ul><ul><li>-Individuals </li></ul><ul><li>-Governments </li></ul><ul><li>-NGOs </li></ul><ul><li>-Companies </li></ul>
  7. 8. … even Nike!!! <ul><li>How Big is the Footprint of a Nike Running Shoe?!! </li></ul>
