Planet-hogs Anonymous Newbie

I found this fantastically informative interactive piece online, a green calculator/finger-wager, if you will.

After a short series of entertainingly animated questions, I found out that though my ecological footprint may be lighter than the average American, (pause here for dramatic effect) it would take 3 planets to support a world in which each person lives the way I do. And, I recycle/compost everything; carpool/bus to my workplace which is only 2.3 miles; seldom buy new books, clothing, furniture—blahblahblah.

I guess the bottom line is: You can always be greener. And also: Design can change the world. Yeah, I said it.
