California Academy of Sciences: Carbon Cafe

Use the Carbon Café food cubes to initiate conversation about making better food choices for the health of our environment, through developing an understanding of relative carbon footprints of various foods.

While we designed this activity to work with museum guests who stop by for a facilitated discussion, you can easily adapt it for use in your classroom, learning garden, or nature center!
