Eat locally and seasonally

Choosing our food carefully can make a big difference to your carbon footprint, as well as support local communities and increase community resilience. By shopping locally we are also helping to reduce food miles – the distance food has to travel (and so energy used) to get from farm to plate. Sourcing more food locally and in season, either by shopping locally or growing your own is a great place to start, and there are plenty more great options you can pledge to take.

Reduce food waste

With the average New Zealand family wasting $560 per year on food that’s bought but never eaten, cutting down on food waste is one of the biggest wins for your pocket, and the planet.

Eat more plant-based meals

Did you know the biggest contributor to New Zealand’s carbon footprint is agriculture? The science tells us that one of the most effective ways of reducing our carbon emissions is shifting to a plant rich diet.  While red meat and dairy production may be a necessity in our current economy, increasing plant-based meal options, or swapping out red meat for chicken or pork, can make a huge difference to your carbon footprint, and your wallet. Take the pledge to change your eating habits and discover the great alternatives.
