Food and sustainability: different ways of eating with the Earth in mind

The relationship between food and environmental sustainability is now obvious to all. The food system, from production to consumption (and waste) of food, produces one third of all greenhouse gas emissions on the planet, and given the increasing world population, it is clear that it is no longer sustainable.

Breeding and agriculture in fact destroy the land and pollute the soil, and therefore a vegetarian and vegan choice is now to be preferred, despite all the difficulties involved. CiboCrudo, Italy's leading plant-based and raw food brand, has found seven guidelines that one can follow to eat more sustainably.

Such a drastic change of habits, of course, is not easy, but given the worldwide trend of food consumption it could be a big help in saving the planet.

Eating organic is essential
Organic farming promotes an unusual variety of plants, uses crop rotation and fertilises naturally, avoiding the use of pesticides and plant protection products: substances that have proven over time to have negative effects on the environment, groundwater, ecosystems and even our well-being. By supporting organic crops we are doing good for the planet, with healthier and tastier food.

Eat in color
This is one of the classic tips that nutritionists give. In fact, the different colors of vegetables also represent the various nutrients our bodies need. In fact, agricultural and food biodiversity is precisely one of the ways by which the planet will be saved.

Support small local producers
Here again, one must be careful not only to buy organic, but also where one buys. In fact, buying organic food from local or zero-mile producers is usually more of a guarantee of quality than industrial products. In addition, the local micro economy is a very sustainable way of consuming.

Cooking is a joy
One of the true joys of food is precisely that of physically cooking one's own meals. Especially by using fresh, organic, nutritious and also beautiful looking food, food consumption only benefits. Furthermore, with organic and plant-based products, it is possible to create absolutely delicious dishes and recipes.

Consume easily
Be careful, when buying organic food, to read the list of ingredients. Two-digit lists are not ideal, even if it says organic on the package. Processed foods, even when organically grown, may contain preservatives, colouring agents and other additives that are added to prolong their shelf life, improve their appearance or palatability. The right choice is to buy food without preservatives or colouring agents, free of sugar and processed in an artisanal way.

Support the plant-based
The industrial production and distribution of meat and dairy products require high energy consumption, from feed to slaughterhouse, from processing to shipping. Plant-based eating, in this sense, means choosing to use as little natural resources as possible, thus producing fewer greenhouse gases. This is a double win, for us and for the planet.

Avoiding food waste
Taking data from Italian citizens alone, it was found that each person wastes up to 65 kg per year of perfectly edible food. This way of consumption is no longer sustainable. In addition, food waste is also a heavy cause of methane gas emissions.
