While meal kits produce 0.17 kg more carbon dioxide than store meals through packaging, per Gizmodo, researcher Brent Heard tells NPR this "is a relatively small contributor to the overall environmental impacts of a meal".
"Folks are really focused on the plastics and packaging in meal kits", said lead author Shelie Miller, an environmental scientist at the University of MI in a press release. Meal kit study expands upon the conclusions arrived by the researchers at the University of Washington in that it further shows how unsustainable some of our most basic activities actually are. The team "measured every bit of food, plastic, bits of cardboard, everything for each type of meal", Shelie Miller, an environmental scientist at the University of MI and lead author of the new study in Resources, Conservation and Recycling, tells Lambert. Ultimately, buying food that will remain unused and eventually be thrown out at the end of the week, either by stores or customers, outweighed aspects like the environmental impact of the boxes it took to get the ingredients for your pesto rice bowl to your door (of course, if you never bother to cook your meal kit, this advantage disappears).
