http://www.wikihow.com/Have-a-Smaller-Ecological-Footprint

Brochure Links!

1. Google Docs Link:

With the link below, you will need to open the file, BUT DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE!
Rather, click on File and then "Make a Copy".  You can make a copy for yourself and edit that one.  Do not edit the copy below:



2. Lucid-press link:
If you would like to see how to create a similar brochure to the one in class, you can click on the link below:

You will need to create an account (the free option), but once you do, you can link it to your google account and save your work through google drive.

Again, DO NOT EDIT THIS BROCHURE!!!!!

The best thing to do once you get your link and make your account is to create your own copy of the same one.  You can do this by going to File + Make a copy (Ctrl+Shift+S). Then save it to your Google Drive.


I would suggest using Lucid-press, as you can make a WAY better brochure on that website.

You can use the following link to find out some info on largest and smallest ecological footprint.

Here is a visual link for largest footprint
