@Snoro interesting. Anecdotally, people are very fussy about plastic food packaging, and pride themselves on avoiding it. Judging by that chart, for many food groups its environmental cost is negligible.

@michiel Perhaps what is most worrying is its dispersal across the planet.

@Snoro I suppose the data is not available somewhere to play with it? I'd really like this graph to be normalized by energy content of the food instead of per kg.

@Chaos_99
Sorry, I haven’t seen this graphic anywhere else with the ability to play with it.
