In brief: Probable coincidence

Green stool usually is caused by rapid transit - the stool moving through your bowels quickly.
It is most likely that this was coincidence, and there is no documented "scientific" reason for this that I am aware of....However this is not the first time i've heard this. Eat plenty of fiber, drink plenty of water, and see if things don't work themselves out (no pun intended).
