Food Calculator – what is your morning coffee costing the earth

When you think about cutting down your carbon footprint, there’s probably a lot of focus on how much gas you’re burning or what it takes to heat your home. These are important factors but what we eat makes a huge difference too. See what your favorite foods do to the environment with the Food Calculator.

This web tool doesn’t count calories. Instead it gives you a break down of your favorite foods carbon footprint over a year. What’s taken into account is how much it costs to actually produce the food. There’s been a lot of talk about how devastating beef production is but they aren’t the only foods that are rough on the environment.

This isn’t a tool to get you to stop eating the things you eat, just to be more mindful of them. Seeing in graphics how your diet choices effect the greater world can help you make more sustainable choices going forward. Check out the website to use the tool.
