The choices we make about the food that we eat have different effects on Climate change and the carbon and energy that we can save. This is due to the high carbon cost of growing and raising food as well as the emissions food creates when it goes to landfill.
Meat, for example, uses more carbon than all the cars on the planetand food and drink is responsible for around 20% of all carbon equivalent emissions.
This means that reducing food waste by planning our meals and using what we buy (or grow ourselves) is one of the biggest things we can do to combat Climate Change.
