It’s important to keep in mind that we should only purchase what is needed because when we buy something that is unnecessary it will increase waste and affect the climate. Try to learn how to refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle.
✔REFUSE: Say no to single-use plastics and paper goods.
✔REDUCE: Purchase less and be more conscious of what you truly require.
✔REUSE: Keep an item from going to the landfill by maintaining it in good shape and repairing it when it breaks.
✔RECYCLE: Properly recycle any plastic, paper, glass or metal.

This means consuming most fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. Livestock, meat and dairy account for 14.5 percent of man-made global greenhouse gas emissions, owing mostly to feed production and processing, as well as the methane that beef and sheep belch out. By avoiding meat and dairy on a daily basis, you can lower your carbon footprint by 8 pounds per day, or 2,920 pounds per year.

Processed foods contribute to the negative environmental consequences in a variety of ways. “Intense energy production happens throughout the packing process, releasing tons of hazardous gases and carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Processed food packaging also ends up in landfills, contributing to our plastic issue.” said Terlaje. These foods’ production, transportation, and consumption all contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.

Choosing locally farmed food has the potential to minimize energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and utilize less resources than is normally used to transport goods across large distances. Eating seasonally also means eating locally, which is beneficial to the environment. Seasonal food often travels shorter distances to grocery shops, consuming less fuel and emitting less pollution than out-of-season produce.
