4.0 Earths, but I question the questionnaire method of data collection. Oh well, I guess it's the most practical!

I received 2.9 Earths and I believe it said 10.7,8 or 9 global acres. I'm 100% vegan, I recycle, and I walk to a destination unless it's more than
10 miles so those components helped me out immensly

Whoa.

If everyone on Earth were me, we'd use approximately 3.6 Earths.
I'm going to consume around 16.1 global acres with my current lifestyle.

After I got my results I fooled around with the slides for a few minutes. The least I could get was 2.7 Earths, and 11.9 acres, and the most was 21.5 Earths and 95.8 acres. :D

Previous to my other post,I also breed and release green anoles (partially endangered to Florida) to enhance the population.I barely use paper, I only use it if it's a necessity,I don't use electronical objects often (once a week), I plant new trees yearly,I donate to wildlife funds and organizations,I help communities modify their yards to invite creature and plant friendly organisms,and I spread the word about global warming and helping the environment to develop a happy,healthy world.

3.4 earths, 15.3 Acres.. Leasts I could get was 2.4 planets and 10.8 acres, but that would mean I'd never eat, and never have any electrical functions EVER. O_o

I eat 100 percent raw, which means not only am I vegan, but I only eat raw plant material (basically NO processed anything). It is amazing, I never crave meat at all. :D My house also has solar panels for all of the hot water. I guess what got me is the travel, since I live far away from school. 4.5 earths. Blah. That makes me sick. I plan to live in a town so small I will not need a car when I grow up, and live totally off the grid. Also growing my own food. I will make it happen.

4 earths :( Mainly because we live in a small town, so my parents have to drive a ways to work, my bus ride is 20 minutes each way, and we eat a lot of dairy, and a decent amount of meat. Our biggest downfalls were food and services. We are working on cutting down on meat, though, along with a few other things. It's sorta scary, though, because we do a lot of things to reduce our footprint. I've got a pretty complete list (though I probably forgot a few) on the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle forum.

Just some interesting comparisons-
I took the quiz again, and made everything as eco-unfriendly as possible. Results were 23.9 earths, and the biggest downfall was mobility. So, from the results I've seen here, we're all doing pretty good, I think.
And, as someone else mentioned, the smallest you could get was 2.4 earths, and the biggest downfall was services. To get 2.4, though, you had to be vegan, have no electricity (or at least only electricity from renewable resources), never use any kind of public transportation or motor vehicles, and recycle everything, as well as only buying paper/plastic stuff made from recycled material.
It sorta freaks me out that it won't go below 2.4... I mean, we only have one earth, not 2 and half. And I doubt we'll be able to colonize the moon or mars anytime soon, if ever.
