Find out how your carbon footprint is generated
Some of our everyday actions also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
Transporting a banana by ship generates 80 g of carbon dioxide
What produces these emissions?
Transport by ship from another continent. What's more, its cultivation has other negative effects on the environment, since large areas are being cleared to grow them, reducing ecological diversity.
What can you do to reduce them?
To minimize the impact caused by transport, the most effective option is to consume products that have been grown close to where you buy them
