I preprocessed the data in Python and coded in Javascript 

to design the Data Visualization Artwork "The Impact Sizer".

Some tips to reduce the carbon footprint of your food:

1.Choose plant-based foods: Plant-based foods have a lower carbon footprint than animal-based foods because they require fewer resources to produce. Try to incorporate more fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes into your diet.

​2. Buy local and seasonal produce: Choosing locally grown and seasonal produce reduces the carbon emissions associated with transportation and storage.

3. Avoid processed foods: Processed foods require more energy and resources to produce and typically have a higher carbon footprint. Choose whole foods that are minimally processed.

​4. Reduce food waste: Food waste that ends up in landfills produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Plan your meals and buy only what you need. Use leftovers to make new meals or freeze them for later use.
