One Planet Food by green-tv

Even the food we eat can make an impact on our planet. Consider these questions from Global Warming Diet when you eat your next meal:

  • How far do I travel to buy food and how do I get there?
  • How much food am I buying—will I eat it all?
  • What kind of food am I buying—is it plant based or animal based?
  • Geographically, where is my food coming from?
  • Is my food organic?
  • How processed is my food?
  • What kind of packaging is used for my food?
  • Do I buy too many processed foods that need to be frozen or refrigerated?
  • How am I disposing of the food and packaging waste?
