In general, raising livestock takes a huge toll on the environment. For perspective, farming animals produces from 20 to 50 percent of all man-made greenhouse gas emissions in the world. While chickens are lower on the carbon scale than, say, cows, producing eggs is still generally unsustainable: One kilogram of egg protein (what you'd get from about 10 dozen eggs) releases about 4.8 kilograms of CO2 into the atmosphere.

But there's good news for egg lovers out there: The Dutch company Kipster is claiming to have created the world's first carbon-neutral egg. Calling themselves a "revolutionary farm," which prioritizes animal welfare, environmental sustainability and social responsibility, Kipster has employed a handful of green methods to offset the carbon footprint of producing eggs.
