Ecological Footprint - How Big Is Yours

What exactly is an ecological footprint? According to Wikipedia
it is a measure of human demand on the Earth's ecosystems. It compares human demand with planet Earth's ecological capacity to regenerate it. It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area needed to regenerate the resources a human population consumes and to absorb and render harmless the corresponding waste.

Basically, there are consequences for everything we do because everything uses earths resources and creates some sort of waste that goes back into the environment.
