What’s the environmental benefit of eating beans instead of beef daily for a year? Or drinking almond milk instead of cow’s milk? This climate change food calculator shows how eating a plant-based diet can help you reduce your carbon footprint. The BBC calculator includes the environmental impact—including greenhouse gas emissions and land and water use—of more than 30 animal products, fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, and beverages.
