Avoid choosing imported food. Take locally labeled food.

This will reduce carbon emissions and promote the local economy as well. Finish all the food that you order. Uneaten food not only creates more rubbish but wastes energy. Eating locally will reduce carbon emissions, and taking smaller servings can reduce food waste. Use reusable, recyclable, biodegradable food containers. or   What we eat and how it is provided may have great impacts on the environment. Food can vary in consumption of energy, agricultural waste, and delivery methods. Food which consumes the least amount of resources is best for the environment, and often your health too. Eating properly and greenly can help reduce the amount of rubbish thrown into the environment. Eat lower on the food chain, less meat and more vegetables. Meat production can be energy, resource, and pollution intensive. It is estimated that over 4,500 litres of water are consumed per one kg of beef, and the ratio of plant matter consumed is 6:1. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes is healthier for both you and the planet.
