Environment Good to Know

ecoCaledon Kicks off the Caledon Cares Enviro Challenge

Written by ecoCaledon

Challenge Theme – How to Eat to Save the Planet!

Traditionally, when we think of the causes of global warming, fossil fuel energy probably comes to mind. Less conspicuous are the consequences of our breakfast, lunch and dinner – Project Drawdown. 

From farm to fork, the foods we choose to eat can have a major impact on the planet. During our first challenge workshop, we explored the relationship between food and the climate and how our individual and collective choices impact our “food” footprint. We then began the process of RETHINKing our relationship with food by introducing one of the TOP food related climate solutions – a Planetary Health Diet. 

Not to mention, we were joined by an incredible guest speaker – Jason Fonger, Plant-Based Triathlete.

Didn’t get a chance to attend the first workshop? No worries, we’ve got a full and condensed version recorded.
