Our day-to-day decisions can make a big impact on the environment—especially what we eat. Consider buying these types of foods to reduce your carbon footprint!
Organic: Organic foods are specifically produced and grown to reduce water waste, protect the soil, and protect air quality.
Local: When food is grown and sold in your region, it doesn't have to travel far. This reduces carbon emissions from the transportation for non-regional foods.
Produce: All fruits, veggies, grains, and lentils emit less carbon during production than animal products. Tomatoes, broccoli, beans, tofu, and nuts are all great low-emission foods.
Dairy and Eggs: Chicken, eggs, and milk have lower carbon emissions, but be sure to purchase the ones marked organic, cage-free, or pasture-raised and antibiotic-free.
