Find out about how to reduce your carbon footprint
With simple actions, you can make your way of consuming energy more environmentally friendly.
Consume local, seasonal products
You would make your food consumption more sustainable.
When shopping, we also generate emissions. Most of them come from the transport of products from the place where they have been grown or produced, as well as from their conservation in cold stores.
Consider these ideas when planning your menu:
- Check the origin of the food you eat, as transporting it over long distances produces a large amount of emissions.
- Make sure they are seasonal, as keeping them in a cold store or producing them in greenhouses increases their emissions and can diminish their properties.
- Whenever possible, shop at businesses near your home to avoid using the car. Also, check if they have policies against wasting product.
- Buy only what you need and try not to waste food.
By taking these considerations into account, your consumption habits will be more socially and environmentally responsible. You will also contribute to improving the local economy.
