The most impactful way of reducing your footprint through the food you eat is to eat less meat. For example, producing 1kg of beef generates about 60 times more carbon than producing 1kg of garden peas! Source: OurWorldInData.org

We’ve also got used to expecting every type of food to be available all year round. Nearly 50% of the food we import to Australia every year comes from the USA, either by plane or ship. If we eat more seasonally and locally sourced food, we can take another big step in reducing carbon emissions.
