Everything we eat or drink has a carbon footprint. The meat industry has one of biggest footprint because of the amount of land, water and pesticides needed to feed the cattle. But meat is not the only food that has an impact on the planet, there are many factors to look at for sustainable food: ingredients, packaging, whether it was produced locally or not, whether it is organic or not, etc.
Ask yourself the following questions: was it produced organically, or using tons of pesticides? Was it produced locally, or does it require hours of travel to get here? Does it generate a huge amount of plastic packaging waste? Are the ingredients natural?
