Prior to completing a carbon footprint survey I considered myself to be on the right track: I haven’t been driving for a year, I reduced unnecessary purchases to the minimum, I’ve been recycling, saved on my energy spending and started to look at what else I could do to improve my impact on the environment. While I was filling the survey I was pretty satisfied with my answers and expected a fairly good result.
And what a low carbon footprint would I have generated had I not been an international student.
