Reflective Writing

According to the footprint that I done from the website, the footprint result included Food, Services, Goods, Mobility and Shelter section. The most impact area is the Shelter that I am using which resulted 39 out of 100 percentages. Following is the rest of the my results that I did from the footprint which are food are 19%, Services 29%, Goods 8% and mobility 5%.
