Economz - Visualizing Your Carbon Foodprint by Sam Slover

Everyday, multiple times a day, you make a key choice that will determine your personal carbon footprint. It's not necessarily the car you drive or even the fuel you burn (although these are important sources as well) - rather, it is the food you choose to consume.

When it comes to your personal carbon footprint, your food choices matter - a lot. Some studies peg food choices as contributing as much as 30% of one's overall carbon footprint.

economz is an interactive visualization project that helps people make sense of their carbon foodprint. By creating meals using popular food items, economz shows the associated carbon footprint using a gauge we're all familiar with: car miles traveled.
