How bad are bananas?

Posted on 01-03-2011 by emily

I have been reading the book "How bad are bananas?:A carbon footprint of everything" by Mike Berners-Lee which explains the carbon footprint of a range of different products and activities in a very accessible way. I have pulled out a few figures which may be of interest to younger people and put them into the attached worksheet. It could be used as an introduction to the idea of carbon footprints and highlight some areas of our daily lives where we can reduce carbon emissions.
