The researchers state that, pound for pound, meal kits have a smaller carbon footprint than equivalent meals bought from a grocery store and prepared at home. A study in the scientific journal Resources, Conservation and Recycling, examines the whole life cycle — from farm to garbage can — of meal kits and their grocery store equivalents, and finds that, on average, store meals produce 33% more greenhouse gas emissions than their equivalents from meal kit industry. Much of the reduced emissions stems from less food waste and a more streamlined supply chain, according to the study. In marathos we deliver only the food you need for a meal, our plastic footprint offsets savings from reduced waste.
