On The Green Side: Ecological Footprint Calculator

Check out the Footprint Calculator from the Global Footprint Network if you want to see what impact you personally have on the planet.

So who are they? (You may well ask.) The answer would be that the "Global Footprint Network is an international think tank working to advance sustainability through use of the Ecological Footprint, a resource accounting tool that measures how much nature we have, how much we use and who uses what."

(Currently this is available to calculate for the United States and Australia but they say other countries will be coming soon.)

Also take a look at the tabs at the top of the page: About Us, Footprint Basics, Footprint Science, Partnerships, & Resources for lots more information.
