You don't need to become a vegan to be able to eat ethically, there are some changes you can do to your diet to be more environmentally friendly.
The way you eat and the choices you make not only have a great impact on your body but also affect the environment. The demand for food resources of course can not be avoided, you can make educated choices and sustainable decisions regarding food.
How to eat ethically without becoming strictly vegan
Support local produces and small businesses. Buying local products reduces your carbon footprint as transportation is reduced.
Eat less meat
Beef and lamb require extensive land use, lots of food supplies, processing and packaging. It is a good idea to consume more vegetable sources of protein to reduce greenhouse gases.
Don't waste food
Did you know that food waste accounts for up to 6% of greenhouse gas emissions? Buy frozen veggies and fruits to reduce waste, plan your meals and use up all the food you have at home.
Make sensible decisions when you buy and eat food, you'll be saving money and helping the environment.
