Meat Consumption

Some people eat meat. Some don't. It's a personal decision. Rather than focusing on the question of "to meat or not to meat," think about reducing your FoodPrint by eating less meat, and paying attention to where it comes from, and how it's produced.

Here are some ideas to improve your Meat Consumption FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Try "Meatless Mondays" in your home.
  • Cut your serving size of meat in half.
Next
Food Waste

More than 40% of food is thrown out every year in the US. When you waste food, you waste all the resources it took to produce that food (think: water, time, labor) plus your own hard-earned money!

Here are some ideas to improve your Food Waste FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Make a grocery list before you go shopping so you're not buying things you won't use.
  • Compost or reuse food scraps.
Next
Food Literacy

Knowledge is power when it comes to almost anything, especially food sustainability. The more you know about the food you eat – from the labels on the package to the practices used to produce it – the easier it is to make smart decisions that can improve your health and the planet.

Here are some ideas to improve your Food Literacy FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Learn what Food Labels really mean.
  • Visit the Real Food Encyclopedia.
Next
Local & Seasonal Sourcing

When you buy locally sourced food, you support local farmers and local economies. Seasonal food is also often cheaper than out-of-season food, and it tastes way better.

Here are some ideas to improve your Local & Seasonal Sourcing FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Shop seasonal and local foods in your region.
  • Visit the Real Food Encyclopedia.
Next
Worker Welfare

It takes a lot of people to produce the food on your plate - from farmers to field workers to food processors. How those workers are treated makes a difference.

Here are some ideas to improve your Worker Welfare FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Get to know the farm (or farmer's stand) where you buy your food from.
  • Look for Fair Trade or Rainforest Alliance labels.
Next
Animal Welfare

Factory farms, or concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), inhumanely force animals to endure cramped, unhealthy conditions. They also have a negative impact on the environment, communities, farm workers and public health.

Here are some ideas to improve your Animal Welfare FoodPrint.
Tips to Try
  • Look for Animal Welfare Approved labels on products at the shelf.
  • Find a local butcher that reliably sources humanely slaughtered meats.
