The best way to measure environmental sustainability is through measuring our current ecological footprint. An ecological footprint is the measure of a group’s impact on the environment and its resources. Ecological footprints can be used to measure the impact of a business, a family, or an entire country. It is important to measure the environmental sustainability of different practices so that we know how our actions impact the environment.

Whether or not certain actions are environmentally sustainable will depend on the amount of resources they use, if those resources are replaced, and the amount of pollution or waste they put into the environment. Actions that are considered environmentally sustainable are ones that give back as much as or more than they take from the planet and its resources.
