Here’s 4 tips to dine sustainably from WWF
You might think that that sticking to your diet is tough and if that’s not enough, you learn that what you eat can also play a huge impact on the environment.
In fact, studies claim that your choice of meal impacts global warming because of the amount of carbon used to produce the food varies.
Well, eating food that is healthy for your body and healthy for the environment is made more simple with WWF’s three step tip on how to dine sustainably. And that’s good news.
First, try local and healthy food. By going local, you support local industries. “By becoming #TheSustainableDiner in your circle, you help #SustainOurAbility to grow food, produce food, and ensure food security for you, your family, and future generations,” WWF posted.
Say no to plastics is pretty straightforward as the world is already reeling from too much waste generated from non-biodegradable waste like plastics that are invading our oceans and posing danger to marine wildlife. Carry your eco bag and reusable containers so as not to contribute to this problem further.
Lastly, dine responsibly. Don’t be takawtingin and get more portions than you are capable of eating. Wasted food is also a waste of the effort and resources used to produce it.
So if you can’t find time to completely get started on your diet, trying to make a habit of these sustainable practices could be a good starting point to eating healthier and more responsibly. Do it for yourself and Mother Earth. (ANGEL ONG)
