Understanding the Impact of Going Green with your Meals
Veg Effect Calculator
In 2015, MorningStar Farms® worked with Quantis, leaders in life cycle assessment consulting, to conduct a study comparing the environmental impact of veggie meals, meat-containing meals, and some of our own products across water use, greenhouse gas emission and land use. With that data we created the Veg Effect Calculator™ so that everyone can see the good their veggie meal can create.
