Men produce a larger carbon footprint than women, according to a recent French study.

Largely due to increased travel and meat-centered diets, an average French man emits 39.3kg of CO2 per day, compared to 32.3kg for the average French woman – about a 22 percent difference.

Researchers say women tend to take fewer plane trips and drive shorter distances than men, while women are also more likely than men to be vegetarian and consume fewer processed foods, which are more carbon intensive to produce than fruits and vegetables.

The study dovetails with other research that shows women are more conscientious than men about the environment overall and enforce recycling habits at home.
