WHAT DOES BEING PLANT-BASED MEAN FOR OUR PLANET?

The biggest culprit behind the climate change is one only a few people know about–the meat industry. In fact, the use of fossil fuels for both energy and animal agriculture are the two biggest destructive elements that contribute to the global warming. Eating a vegan diet could be the “single biggest way” to reduce your environmental impact on earth, a new study suggests. Researchers at the University of Oxford found that cutting meat and dairy products from your diet could reduce an individual’s carbon footprint by up to 73%. If we all go plant-based, the food-related emissions would drop by 70% by 2050. #plant-based

What does being organic mean for our planet?

Organic food is made through a farming system which avoids the use of man-made fertilisers, pesticides, growth regulators and livestock feed additives. The use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) or products produced from or by GMOs are generally prohibited by organic legislation. Organic farms have lower emissions and use less energy which in turn lowers the risk of pollution in soils and waterways. Organic farming regenerates the soil that feeds us. It sustains and encourages the wildlife and insects that support our living world. It’s this idea of a benevolent cycle of goodness that make organic principles so special to us.

What reducing food waste mean for our planet?

When thrown into landfill, food waste produces a large amount of methane. As food rots and degrades, it emits these harmful gases which are 25 times more harmful than carbon dioxide in terms of trapping heat in the atmosphere When we waste food, we also waste all the energy and water it takes to grow, harvest, transport, and package. If we stopped wasting food altogether, we’d eliminate 8% of our total emissions. It may take some effort, but cutting the amount of food you throw away can have a real impact on the planet.

What does recycling mean for our planet?

Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. Recycling reduces the need to grow, harvest or extract new raw materials from the Earth. Making products from recycled materials requires less energy than making them from new raw materials. When in doubt remember these three Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

What does carbon free shipping means for our planet?
