How low carbon can YOU go?
To help guests understand how their food choices contribute to global warming, we built an interactive Low Carbon Diet Calculator. The calculator uses a point system based on lifecycle assessment studies from published research gathered by two teams of science advisers. More than 40 peer-reviewed papers were studied.
For Low Carbon Diet Day 2013, we relaunched the calculator as an interactive website, Eat Low Carbon, offering tips for minimizing one’s “foodprint,” a wealth of external education links, and a fun photo quiz that asks diners to choose which sample meal offers the lowest total of CO2 emissions on their plates.EatLowCarbon.org
