It can be caused by harmless things like food or supplements. But also if food travels too quickly through your bowels than they will come out green b/c that's bile's color. lactose intolerance, bacterial infection, among other things causes food to move quickly thru the bowels.

Usually green feces is caused by eating a lot of vegetables or other substances that are green. It's perfectly natural to have green feces occasionally. Basically, your feces will turn the color of whatever foods you consume, if you eat enough of said food.

This could very well be due to your diet such as eating green leafy vegetables. Iron supplements or even foods that are rich in iron can also give stool a green tinge.
