What do you mean by Green Meals?
Having your meals regularly on a daily basis is
our routine but having Green stuff everyday
isn't. We need to improve this and taking this
into consideration we want everyone to
contribute in eating green and healthy
everyday. This is known as Green Meals. It is
also cheaper and contributes to less carbon
Contribution of CO2 emission due to my meal.
Carbon calculators typically calculate the
amount of carbon a person is responsible for
through their daily activities which is
calculated in tons. Our simple meal can also
lead to a huge amount of emission of carbon
dioxide. Atleast green food doesn’t contribute
that much to carbon dioxide emission as other

Curbing of Carbon Dioxide Emission.
If we plant more, especially the green
vegetables, we can help in more production
of oxygen and less of carbon dioxide.
With this we also accomplish our task of
growing green vegetables which emits less
amount of carbon dioxide as compared to
the other foods.
This will also help in devising our meals
greener than our average meals.
The following table shows the greenhouse gas
emissions produced by one kilo of each food.
Food’s carbon footprint, or foodprint, is the
greenhouse gas emissions produced by growing,
rearing, farming, processing, transporting, storing,
cooking and disposing of the food you eat. Changing
the foods that you eat can have a big impact on your
carbon footprint. And reduce pollution, preserve the
environment and slow global warming. Many of
these changes will also save you money, improve your
health and even keep you fit. If you move towards a
mainly vegetarian diet, you can have a large impact
on your personal carbon footprint.
How can you make your meals greener?

come to the conclusion that we can make our meals

normal everyday meal.
We eat local food.
We don’t eat packed food.
Prevent ourselves in eating junk which does not
contain the required green veges.
Grow more vegetables plants as it contributes in less
emission of CO2 as well.
