Your Shopping Choices and The Environment

The grocery shop decisions you make have a direct influence on the environment. With their buying choices, consumers may make a difference and lessen the environmental effect of the food they consume. We have a lot of influence, and our choices can help reduce the negative impact on our environment.

Agriculture is responsible for around half of the world’s habitable land. Agriculture consumes over 70% of the world’s freshwater and accounts for one-quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions. Grasslands, woodlands, and deserts made up the majority of the earth’s surface until recently. Wild ecosystems have been replaced by farmland during the last few hundred years as humans have turned to agriculture to provide the food needed to sustain human life. Livestock requires even more land than crops grown for human consumption. Switching to a meat-less diet can help alleviate the demand for livestock dedicated lands.
