WHY IT MATTERS
How we calculate our carbon footprint for this action: The carbon footprint of cooking is determined by cooking method, cooking time, and cooking location. Assumptions: Oven temperature: 350 Fahrenheit (ca. 180 Celsius), Cooking Time: 30 min, weight of food: 16 ounces (ca. 450 gr) = 250gr CO2 (average boiling, frying, baking) x 3 times per day x 30 days = 22,5kg CO2 (see World Economic Forum, 2022).
We work with the nonprofit organisation CoolEffect on high quality carbon projects to reduce carbon emissions worldwide. Projects include forestation projects in Kenya and Uganda, technology based Avoidance/Reduction projects in China and Honduras (cookstoves) and renewable energy projects in India. Cool Effect triple verifies the science behind every carbon project that they represent, combining science, expertise, and transparency.
