Abstract

One of the tools to measure the environmental impacts of the utilization of natural resources is determining ecological footprint (EF). The study assessed how one’s lifestyle could have impacts on the condition of our natural resources. EF study was conducted among households within the premises of Central Mindanao University, Bukidnon, Philippines. One hundred (100) households were interviewed using a pre-constructed questionnaire based on the data needed for the downloadable EF spreadsheet program. EF of the respondents was analyzed using descriptive statistics and multiple linear regression. The results revealed a higher per capita EF among the respondents (3.81 global hectares) compared to the national as well as the global EF averages. Based on the findings, there is a negative relationship between household size and EF and a positive relationship between income and EF.
