Food & Consumption

 
 

The relationship between food and sustainability is something most people don't think about every day...and this mentality leads to negative environmental impacts

growing and processing food requires tremendous nonrenewable energy

many species suffer from conventional farming practices and much of the Earth is covered with farmland that relies on toxic chemicals

huge amounts of food waste are buried in the world's landfills. Many people believe that organics decompose in landfills....but this is an urban myth - lack of proper air circulation limits decomposition,
even for the banana peels and apples cores.
