This quiz asks you a few little questions about your life and your feelings to help us work out how you score on our Green Grin-o-meter. Your score will be made up of three parts: Happiness, Health and your Ecological Footprint. Each of your scores will be given out of a total of 5. For health and happiness, 5 is the best score and a score of 1 tells us that there’s room to make some changes!Your ecological footprint tells us your impact on the environment, by causing pollution and using resources. So the lower your ecological footprint is, the better and the less damage you cause for the environment.

So let’s get going and see how you do!  GREEN-GRIN-O-METER
