Eggs and Environment
Eggs are among the animal food, which that have the lowest carbon emission and thus a more environmental-friendly choice when it comes to food from animals.
Eggs have a lower carbon emission than other animal food due to the feed conversion rate which is high. This means the egg laying hens convert the feed they eat efficiently to eggs. The emission from eggs are around two kilos carbon per kilo produced egg.
Therefore, if one chooses to eat protein from animals, but still want to eat according to what is good for environment, eggs are one of the better candidates.
