Benefit #1: Lower Food Miles

Nations around the world are implementing ambitious goals to curb humanity’s wasteful habits. This means taking a long hard look at what we consume, and how it gets to our plates.

Benefit #2: Reducing Resource Burnout

Modern agricultural and ranching activities strip the soil of vital nutrients. In addition, one-third of food produced in the world is wasted. According to UC Davis, growing food takes up a whopping 70 percent of the earth’s water, 20 percent of its land resources, and 32 percent of the world’s energy production.

Benefit #3: Preserving Biodiversity

Over 37,400 species are at risk of extinction. The time is running out to preserve them.
