Ethical Eating: Sustainable and Humane Choices

Ethical eating involves making food choices that are sustainable, humane, and fair. It's about considering the environmental, social, and animal welfare impacts of what we eat.

What is ethical eating?

Buying local and seasonal foods reduces the environmental impact of transportation and supports local farmers. Plus, food tastes better when it's in season!

CHOOSE LOCAL AND SEASONAL

When buying animal products, look for labels like 'free-range', 'organic', or 'Certified Humane' to ensure the animals were treated well.

CHOOSE HUMANE

About a third of all food produced globally is wasted. Plan meals, use leftovers, and compost food scraps to minimize waste.

MINIMIZE FOOD WASTE

Raising livestock for meat has a significant environmental impact. Consider reducing your meat consumption and choose sustainably raised or organic meat when you do eat it.

REDUCE MEAT CONSUMPTION

Fair Trade products ensure that producers in developing countries get a fair price for their goods. Look for the Fair Trade logo when shopping.
