  1. It’s showing how much of an impact we have on the earth through things such as food, energy, and housing. We have an ecological footprint because it is starting to show how much we are taking from nature, leaving our very own footprint on earth.

  2. It’s showing how humans are impacting earth through energy, supplies, and food.

  3. An ecological footprint is a measure of the humans demand on the earths ecosystem. This is measured by the amount of natural resources that a person uses rough out their lifetime. If you are very wasteful and not very ecologically friendly then you have a large footprint.

  4. The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth’s ecosystems. It is measured by the demand for natural capital that may be contrasted with the planet’s ecological capacity to regenerate.

  5. Ecological footprint is the use of resources that are not recycled therefore classified as waste, and how much waste humans are producing in a small amount of time. This is measured by how fast we consume and generate waste compared to how fast nature can generate new resources.

  6. An ecological footprint is a measure of how humans effect the environment. The footprint shows everything from carbon emissions to the number of trees we cut down. Our footprint represents our impact on the world around us.

  7. Our impact on the enviroment throuout our lifetimes. It’s measured by how fast we consume those resources from our enviroment and get rid of them later as waste. Most of us have a huge ecological footprints because we don’t think about the enviroment when we consume things.

  8. The ecological footprint is how much impact humans make on the environment in a lifetime. It is measured by the amount of resources a person uses.

  9. Ecological footprint is a calculation that shows the productive area of earth needed to support one person in a particular country.

  10. The simplest way to define ecological footprint would be to call it the impact of human activities measured in terms of the area of biologically productive land and water required to produce the goods consumed and to assimilate the wastes generated.

  11. An ecological footprint is a measure of the humans demand on the earths ecosystem. This is measured by the amount of natural resources that a person uses rough out their lifetime. If you are very wasteful and not very ecologically friendly then you have a large footprint.

  12. The ecological footprint is just the impact that humans are making on the environment in their lifetime. It is measured by how much you consume and waste.

  13. The ecological footprint is a mystical database that tracks everything we do. Like how much water we use, and how much waste we produce and throw away. The footprint tells us everything that we are doing that is hurting the environment, or is leading to environmental destruction.

  14. The ecological footprint is from my point of view a pause in time where we can look back and see how much damage we have cause and are causing currently on the earth. It is measured by how much carbon we release, how many animals we cause to go instinct, and how much land we destroy by living are everyday lives
