818 - Deliberate Life Footprint Calculator

My favourite Canadian sustainable living and home education blogger, Nic, has a thoughtful footprint calculator here.

She's tied in sustainable living with wellbeing, so that you give yourself points for proactively engaging in green activities, rather than a guilt-trip for not cutting back on a consumer lifestyle.

Make your own furniture? That's twenty points. Make your own clothes? That's ten. Actually wear them? Another five...

I really, really like this. In fact, I like her whole site. I love the idea that you can build your own culture from scratch, without anyone telling you not to. Niche construction at its finest and most free.

Do check it out.
