I’m really surprised that the travel isn’t higher. I drive a lot.

What did you expect to see?

I thought travel would be much higher.

What did you notice about your footprint compared to other classmates?  (NO judgments here, just observations)

I will come back to this, as I don’t see anyone else’s answers posted.

What surprised you about the statistical differences between US and other countries?

I thought US would be the highest number, but it’s China!

Why is this an important exercise to do if you plan to be a designer?

Printing, packaging, and advertising all affect the planet in a global way.

Define graphic design and then define sustainable design.  What do they have in common?

Graphic Design: the art or skill of combining text and pictures in advertisements, magazines, or books.

Sustainable Design: the philosophy of designing physical objects, the built environment, and services to comply with the principles of social, economic, and ecological sustainability

These both are design, but the objectives are different.
