What is a Climatarian?
A Climatarian diet involves choosing what you eat based on the carbon footprint of the food, and using your power as a consumer to drive down the production of beef and lamb which have the biggest impact on our climate. A climatarian is about eating local food to reduce transportation and reducing food waste.
Climatarian defined in NYT’s top food words 2015: http://nyti.ms/1SZ0jFc see http://bit.ly/goclimatarian for more info
My easy suggestions to become a Climatarian
- Celebrate Meatless Monday, and a few other days also
- Shop food co-ops and eat locally grown foods. Even in December I can find foods grown in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
- Walk or take the bus shopping, and grow and preserve your own food
- Eliminate beef and reduce cheese consumption
- Compost all food waste
