  • Welcome back to Ecto! Today we are going to be finding out our impact (or Footprint) on the earth! How do our lifestyles effect the balance of the Earth? We have become so accustomed to our diets, cars, homes, and energy usage that we don't realize that the Earth will NOT be able to provide the needed resources forever. Let's find out how much damage we are doing.
