  1. Sustainable Consumption AsyaAkchurin Alyssa Altamirano William Cartwright

  2. Our Transportation Consumption Patterns Week 1 Week 2

  3. Average American Transportation Consumption and Emission • Avg. car = 21 mpg • Avg. gallon emits 8887 g CO2 • Avg. CO2 emissions = 423 g CO2/mile • Avg. American drive 230 miles per week • This leads to 97,615 g CO2 emissions/week per person

  4. Every .003 g of CO2 emitted is equivalent to 1 liter of oil This means that on average every week an American consumes 32,500,000 liters of oil!!

  5. Personal Emissions Week 1 Week 2 Total of 48 miles driven 48 miles x 423 g CO2/mile = 20,304 g CO2 emitted by 3 people in one week • Total of 42 miles driven • 42 miles x 423 g CO2/mile = 17,766 g CO2 emitted by 3 people in one week (mostly Billy)

  6. Emissions Reduced by Walking • On average, one person reduces CO2 emissions by 300 kg a year • This is equal to 5769.23 g CO2 per week • Using our personal data: • Week 1 we saved 141,439.187 g CO2 by walking • Week 2 we saved 163,771.69 g CO2 by walking

  7. Alternatives to Driving • Metro • Biking • Taxi or Uber! • Carpooling • Walking
