An Ecological Footprint is our impact on Earth. Right now our impact on this planet is very bad. Our Overshoot day was August 1, which means we are currently digging into Earth's savings. We are not recycling nearly as much as we can, and waste is infesting our lives. We are sending more trash to the landfills; and putting more carbon into the air, which causes global warming. We are not doing enough to stop it. Make a difference, change the world!
