Understanding Food and Climate Change

 

First, let’s talk about
greenhouse gases.

Greenhouse gases are gases in the atmosphere that occur naturally or are man-made. These gases include carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide.*

Okay, but how does it affect the climate?

Carbon, which is the most common greenhouse gas, traps the sun’s heat in the atmosphere which creates the “Greenhouse Effect”. This increase in temperature causes changes in weather patterns, which is also called climate change.

The food industry’s role.

One third of greenhouse gas emissions** are caused by the food industry. We know it is our ethical duty to use sustainable practices to minimize our impact.

What’s carbon offset?

A carbon offset is a certified program that captures and destroys carbon dioxide from the universe to help reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
