Bananas are a great example of a climate-friendly food -- despite being grown thousands of miles from where they are consumed. For just 80g of CO2e you get a whole lot of nutrition: 140 calories as well as stacks of vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and dietary fibre. All in all, a fantastic component of a low-carbon diet.
