ABSTRACT
Consumption may be appointed as a cause of difficulty in achieving sustainability, although it places the companies to "blame" for sustainability of the planet, is the conscience of every individual who can change this picture. The article analyzes the Ecological Footprint Method as a tool for evaluating the profile of conscious consumption. From the use of semistructured interviews, data were analyzed using a software for calculating the ecological footprint individual and collective. The data were compared with the ecological footprint of Brazil and the world. They point to the lack of environmental awareness of respondents whose ecological footprint is above the national footprint.
