Our food traveled from a variety of places, it all traveled 2,098.1 miles to get to my plate. Thats 7762.97 pounds of CO2 that wasput into the atmosphere. Thats equivelent to an elephant!!!!

The amount of miles that it took for 1 lunch is 18,461.8 miles! That is so far away just for 1 bag of lunch! The total carbon that had been put into the atmosphere for my lunch is 68,308.66 pounds of carbon dioxide into the air!!! Thats as huge as 6 elephants all together=http://! That's crazy!!!

The reason we made a lunch was to see how far are food came from to us in chimicum. All of the driving miles from the produce came for Was a total of over 42 THOUSEND air and road miles!! That's a ton of miles and money for a simple bottle of water and bread, apple, chicken, and lettuce. Article posted March 22, 2012 at 07:25 PM GMT • comment • Reads 128

The total miles it took to get it here was 11,538. To convert that mileage into pounds of CO2 you have to multiply every mile by 3.67. The product of that is 43,267.5 pounds of carbon. That's the weight of 4.3 elephant! Article posted March 22, 2012 at 05:18 PM GMT • comment • Reads 81

All of these came fro different places in the U.S, I'm organic so I picks things grown in Washington, it took 1,628 miles to get from different place in Washington to our grocery stor for my lunch. When we convert that to carbon dioxide, it was 6,028.6 ponds of co2!! One pound of co2 can fill a whole classroom. That's one pound. We converted our carbon dioxide to elephants, for those of you who can't picture 6,000 classrooms full of co2, we created .6 carbon elephants with our lunch. To get this, find out where your lunch came from, find the miles, multiply the miles by 3.7 to get the co2 and then divide the co2 by 10,000 to get how many carbon elephants your lunch cost you!! How many carbon elephants did you create? Article posted March 22, 2012 at 05:18 PM GMT • comment • Reads 82

It was a cheese burger whith jam and bread i also had a bannana, yogurt, and a glass of orange juice. The total miles to get that food was 11,538 miles. To get the pounds of carbon you multiply 3.67 by the total mileage. It is preaty horrible just for one lunch. Article posted March 22, 2012 at 05:16 PM GMT • comment • Reads 66
