This principle is described by Bioregional as “supporting sustainable and humane farming, promoting access to healthy, low impact, local, seasonal and organic diets and reducing food waste.” Everyone has to eat so food is a a great icebreaker as well as a very good starting point for cutting one’s environmental footprint. Changing the world for the better one forkful at a time is a good way to start improving one’s impact so we hope this page will inspire you to take action at your table.
