Have I lived eco-positive the past year? 2020/2021

The moment of truth has arrived! It’s time to measure the impact I’ve made the past year. My goal is to live within the earth’s capacity. Meaning that if everybody lived like me, we’d need 1 earth or less (as we have). I started calculating this score for the first time 4 years ago. Back then, I started with a score of 2.5 earths (while I was already a vegetarian, so before I started measuring it must have been like 4 earths or something. I was a disaster for our planet).

Recently I’ve read this post from Zaailingen. In this article Linda calculates the impact she has had on the environment the past year, and the sees wether she is living within the capacity of the earth or not. I was very curious.
