Is your lunch causing global warming?!?! Did you know, the food system is responsible for 1/3 of global greenhouse gas emissions? With every meal you eat, you have the power to reduce climate change.
The Bon Appétit Management Company Low Carbon Diet Calculator is designed to allow you to compare the relative carbon impacts of your food choices. Sierra Club Green Home is happy to partner with Bon Appétit Management Company to bring you this tool. Drag and drop menu items, ingredients or sample meals into your virtual pan and calculate the carbon emissions created by your meals. Start by making food choices that reduce your emissions by 25% and be part of the climate solution.
