Carbon emissions traffic light system for menu options

Wednesday 7th June 2017

The Linacre Green Society have been working with the Kitchen team on implementing a traffic light system for College meals that indicates their relative carbon efficiency. 

All items on the Linacre Kitchen menus will now be coloured as either red, yellow, or green, with these colours corresponding to how 'green' they are to make. 

Although not an exact science, the aim of the project is to highlight average carbon costs of key ingredients in Linacre meals in order to raise awareness and support our members to make environmentally responsible dietary choices.
