Eat Locally

The world emits roughly 3 gigatonnes of greenhouse gases annually during food transportation from production to consumption sites, according to a new study published in Nature Food. According to the analysis, the US, China, Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, India, Russia, and Brazil collectively account for 42 per cent of food transport emissions.

Eat locally: The world could reduce emissions by 0.38 gigatonnes by replacing imports with locally grown food.
