Why not take a small step towards a more sustainable diet this Easter weekend and try going flexitarian?
Going flexitarian is easy – it just means choosing better quality and eating less meat. With reports saying we eat 70% more protein than we need, losing a few meat meals a week and improving the quality of the meat we eat will be great for the waistline and the wallet! The Eating Better Alliance has some great top tips on eating better meat this Easter
Every year we spend £196 billion on food and drink in the UK, but less than 5% of this actually goes to the producers! If not to producers, where is all that money going to?
By choosing locally produced, high welfare, fresh and seasonal foods – sold by independent traders – we can support and strengthen our local food system.
Buying food in this way also transforms the weekly shop into an investment tool for a more sustainable planet. Every £10 you spend on locally produced food in local shops is worth £17.60 to the local economy. Check out our new directory of local stockists and servers of local, sustainable food and let us know who else needs to be included.
