As passionate environmental stewards we know that we need to assess our food choices in addition to our consumption. The production of animal products generates the majority of food-related greenhouse-gas emissions – specifically, up to 78% of total agricultural emissions.
One study, published in the journal Nature, found that as a result of population growth and the continued consumption of Western diets high in red meats and processed foods, the environmental pressures of the food system could increase by up to 90% by 2050.
Sustaining a healthier planet will require halving the amount of food loss and waste, and improving farming practices and technologies. But it will also require a shift toward more plant-based diets which is what we are encouraging everyone in the BB community to do.
Research consistently shows that drastically reducing animal food intake and mostly eating plant foods is one of the most powerful things you can do to reduce your impact on the planet over your lifetime, in terms of energy required, land used, greenhouse gas emissions, water used and pollutants produced.
