So much CO2 your food emits

It is obvious that we can make the biggest impact by inspecting our meat habits: eating less meat, replacing beef with chicken, and replacing imported shrimp with local fish. All of this helps a lot in reducing CO2 footprint of your diet.

Changing our green habits doesn't have as much effect but avoid fruit and vegetables that are flown in out of season, since this adds unnecessary CO2 emissions to your diet. Eat instead the local fruit and vegetables in season.

When it comes to wine and beer a glass of wine emits approx. as much CO2 as a single beer.

This list is based on Concito

The amount of CO2 is measured in kg/CO2 produced per kg/item.
