  10. 10. QUESTIONS 1. There are similarities between us because we both live our lives very ecologically friendly. We are different because Alex travels more by air (so, her ecological footprint is larger) and Rebecca travels more by car (that is when she decides to leave the house) 2. Rebecca: My lifestyle has been influenced by my foot print since I travel by car and foot more. I should walk places more, and lower the use of the car.
  11. 11. QUESTIONS (CONTINUE) 2. Alex: My ecological footprint is influenced by the fact that I travel by air a lot (more than 60 hours a year). However I am vegetarian so, I don’t need as much space to create my food 3. Rebecca: I plan to reduce my ecological foot print by buying more locally grown foods, as well as using the car over the minivan. This will ultimately help lower my carbon emissions into the ozone layer and air. 3. Alex: Since there is almost no chance of my family traveling less, I could always try to use public transit more than driving in the car. Also I can try to eat more locally grown foods and less processed foods.
