Finding Your Diet Emissions (Food Carbon Footprint Calculator)
Believe it or not, your food has a big impact on your carbon footprint! It’s not only the plastics used to preserve and package products, beef and dairy production contribute a huge amount of CO2 emissions (carbon dioxide greenhouse gas) to the environment. And the growing amount of CO2 emissions continues to impact the planet by trapping heat in the atmosphere. If you’re eating meat and cheese at every meal, your food footprint could be up to 30 percent of your total environmental impact!
However, you can do something about the emissions produced by your diet, by using offset programs to erase the harmful CO2 generated by food production, processing and transportation.
