Executive Summary

This project is beginning a carbon-labeling initiative at the University of Washington which would bring awareness to the campus community about the environmental impacts associated with the food agriculture business and allow for people to make more environmentally conscious decisions with their food consumption habits. We are doing this by displaying informative posters on campus food stores and dining halls with an estimated amount of CO2 emissions and water intake it takes to produce particular food products. With this information available, we could allow the community to find more ways in their day-to-day life to make more environmentally sensitive decisions and learn to leverage our power as consumers to show support for sustainable, less carbon-intensive practices. These posters will be printed from a company (Greener Printer) that prints with 100% recycled material and works with to offset their carbon emissions from shipping.
