Green stool color: The color of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, other factors. Consider what you ate in the last few days, but if greenish color is unusual for you & persists or is accompanied by other symptoms see doc.Air=floats
