User avatar Hi tinksplace,
The passage of green colored stool can be caused by a number of reasons, vitamin supplements, green leafy vegetables, or the stool can move through the large intestine too fast to be changed to it's more normal brown color (resulting in green colored diarrhea). If this is only an occasional happening I would consider this to be quite normal.
