Tips for Food Sustainability

Want to support food sustainability, but don't know where to start? These easy steps will help you move in the right direction.

Step 1

Eat more fruits and vegetables -- it takes more energy to produce one calorie of meat than to produce one calorie of plant-based food.

Step 2

Only eat meat from animals that were grass-fed, organic, antibiotic- and hormone-free.

Step 3

Buy from small local sources to reduce fuel use associated with transportation.

Step 4

Help to support and protect local family farms.

Step 5

Take action in your own backyard.
