Our everyday food choices affect global warming and the environment

What we eat matters. The food choices we make every day have a big effect on the environment. The good news is that even small changes in what we buy and eat can add up to real environmental benefits, including fewer toxic chemicals, reduced global warming emissions, and preservation of our ocean resources. Eating “green” can also mean eating fresher, healthier foods while reducing your grocery bill and supporting our farmers.

It’s easy to overlook the environmental impacts of our food because they are spread across all stages of a long process. From farm to fork, food production, processing, and transportation can accumulate enormous amounts of energy, water, and chemicals. We offer the following suggestions to help you and your family make healthy, smart food choices:

1. Choose Climate-Friendly Food
2. Buy Organic and Other Sustainable Certifications
3. Watch Your Waste
4. Eat Locally
