A nice infographic about the impact of our eating habits on the environment. Approximately 100 gr [4 oz] of each food are compared to the same carbon emission of driving a car.
Does this help you to make sense of what you eat?
Following some more facts about how trying to eat less meat can have an impact on our planet. Over a year, in fact:
- If you eat one less burger a week, it’s like taking your car off the road for 320 miles or line-drying your clothes half the time.
- If your four-person family skips meat and cheese one day a week, it’s like taking your car off the road for five weeks – or reducing everyone’s daily showers by 3 minutes.
- If your four-person family skips steak once a week, it’s like taking your car off the road for nearly three months.
- If everyone in the U.S. ate no meat or cheese just one day a week, it would be like not driving 91 billion miles – or taking 7.6 million cars off the road.
