Eat foods + ingredients with low carbon footprints. Eliminate foods + ingredients with high carbon footprints. Buy foods that are in season, local, with minimal packaging and minimal refrigeration. The following carbon footprints of food account for production emissions. Data may include additional emissions from: farm equipment, animal feed, hothouses, greenhouses, processing, packaging, transport, freezing, refrigeration, package waste, etc.
