An online tool calculates the carbon footprint of classic Czech diet
The traditional Czech diet is known for being heavy on meat and light on vegetables. But meat, especially beef, has a high impact on the environment when compared to plant-based foods. As more and more Czechs rethink dietary choices in an effort to reduce environmental impact, an online tool can help calculate metrics that argue for going meat-free.
The online tool Nutriční stopa (nutritional footprint) shows the relative impact of some popular Czech dishes, and also allows users to enter their own recipes. The meals are ranked from one to five, with five having the most impact.
