Whether it’s a salad, a hamburger or your morning egg sandwich, your meal has an impact on the environment and on the welfare of animals, food/farm workers and on public health.
Your “foodprint” is the result of everything it takes to get your food from the farm to your plate. Many of those processes are invisible to consumers.
Industrial food production — including animal products like beef, pork, chicken and eggs and also crops — takes a tremendous toll on our soil, air and water, as well as on the workers and the surrounding communities.
Learn more about what a foodprint is and why you should care about yours here and in the video below.

“FoodPrint” is also the name of a program from a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education on food production practices.
Our aim is to pull back the curtain on the impacts of industrial food production practices and explain the benefits of more sustainable approaches to food production and consumption. We also want to help people raise their collective voices and take action to make real change in the food system.
We’ve got tips, tools and guides for helping you make food choices that can help you eat in line with your values — and shrink your foodprint.
