Abstract: In recent years, the importance of environmental education has more attention as before. The 100- mile diet concept has reduced carbon emissions and is good for environment. This study is an exploratory research and to introduce the concept to students and test their environment cognitive and behaviour. There are 51 students complete questionnaire, 28 males and 23 females. The results indicate that almost college students hold higher food knowledge but lower eating behaviour. However, the results also show that there are no statistical relevance between "food knowledge" (cognitive or belief of food) and "eating behaviour "(behaviour of food). It means that environmental education must change the current teaching methods and be found in daily life and food education.
