"Should I cook or order in?"
If you’re a 20- or 30-something (especially if living in NYC!), we're guessing that you'll probably Seamless or GrubHub something. A food delivery addiction or habit is quite the norm nowadays. And when ordering, we tend to think of our preferences -- price, flavor/taste, calories, macros. Most people don't usually consider the environmental impacts of what they're ordering and Mission Emission aims to solve this lack of knowledge.
What it does
Mission Emission is a Chrome extension that identifies foods and displays their CO2 (and equivalent greenhouse gases) emissions.
How we built it
What's next for Mission Emission
We want to source a more robust dataset with additional metrics and food items, add support for additional websites (like MyFitnessPal), and include day-to-day tracking of carbon footprints.
