Cutting down on meat and dairy in our diets has been shown to be one of the best ways to reduce our environmental impact. Better still this is something that is entirely under our own control and benefits our own health as well as the planet.

Alton Sustainable Eating has just completed a series of workshops on increasing the ratio of plant-based foods in our diets and will be looking for new ways to engage with people locally about the planetary, environmental and health benefits of a more plant-based diet. Get in touch to find out more or to organise a speaker.

We used to think that local food was better than anything that had to be transported here from overseas – now it is clear, from the bar chart below, that it is what you eat, not where it has come from that makes the difference.
