How we feed ourselves

Agriculture & Food, Energy, Sustainability

You may have seen a recent report saying that going meat free one day per week saves more greenhouse gas emissions than eating a fully local diet. It seems kind of dubious, doesn’t it? You’re telling me that shipping grains and fruit half way around the world has less environmental impact than raising it locally?

Well you can test this for yourself at the Landshare Foodprint calculator.
