Using the data you compiled under the Week 7 – Eco Moment (Dinner Data), discuss these questions:

  1. How do your data relate to air, water, and energy uses/abuses associated with the average American meal–is it greater or less than the average miles driven per day in a typical American car?
  2. If your meal included meat, dairy or eggs, be sure to discuss the water footprint of these items. How is carbon footprint impacted by plant-based vs. animal-based products?
  3. If your meal did not include animal products of any kind (vegan diet), discuss local alternatives for at least three main meal items.
