Foodprints for the Future

April 22nd is exactly 2 months down the road. For those of us who are more fans of spring weather than the winter chill, this is beyond exciting. However, for those of us who are environmentalists, we know that April 22nd marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, where the real excitement lies!

To get us in the mood for that, Earth Day Network has created this "Foodprints for the Future." We all know what a "footprint" is, but what's a "foodprint?" From their website:
"A foodprint measures the environmental impacts associated with the growing, producing, transporting, and storing of our food— from the natural resources consumed to the pollution produced to the greenhouse gases emitted."
To learn more about footprints and the merits and health benefits of a plant-based diet, check out the mini movie Earth Day Network created. It does a great job of doing some myth busting about moving to a more plant-based diet...and may inspire you to throw in a few more meatless meals into your meal planning!
To learn more, check out Earth Day Network's "Foodprints for the Future" website. You can also learn more about our food impact (including food waste), their projects, and tips on what you can do.
 Don't forget to check out their wealth of resources (including infographics, articles, and calculators).
