Why use the Footprint? Addresses constraints of measuring resources with monetary value Respects limiting factor of nature’s productivity Decision making tool to compare and contrast alternative practices Easily understandable, interactive and FUN! www.earthday.net/footprint Has been adopted on many levels: -Individuals -Governments -NGOs -Companies
