Did you know the agriculture sector presents both challenges and solutions to climate change? While close to a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions stem from the agricultural industry, more than one third of solutions to reach UN climate goals come from agriculture.
It's simple actions that can have a big impact: reducing our dependence on animal derived products can cut methane emissions by over 30% and buying produce from farmers who rehabilitate their soil through sustainable farming practices can remove 51 gigatonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
And it's changes that we can easily implement at home. There's nothing more comforting than making yourself a bowl full of delicious, nourishing soup during the depths of winter. Look for a plant-based recipe, shop local and seasonal produce and invite some friends - you'll do something nice for yourself and the planet.
