Ecological Footprint: If we all lived like...


How much land would we need if the entire world's population (estimated at 7 billion) lived like us?
Well apparently we would need 4 other planets!

Compare that to the people in Bangladesh... if we all lived like them, we would only need a fraction of our land. 


Pretty disturbing and rather sobering stuff, don't you think?

Ugh...I have to hope that we wise up sooner that later!

it is sobering isn't it. i think the visuals got me - this is an excellent post. Something different to what we might usually come across day-to-day from blogs we visit. Thanks for sharing this and getting us all thinking a little more about such an important issue.

This is a very interesting topic! I´ve been to India a couple of years ago and on some days I still think how little we actually need to be happy and how much waste we´re actually producing. I try to live as green as possible and hopefully more people wake up.

I am going to link up to this post in my next Monday Morning Madness to spread the word!
