A young band of eco-war­riors are lead­ing the charge in cre­at­ing a more sus­tain­able food in­dus­try, and in­spire the green hero in all of us

Striv­ing for a bet­ter life has taken on greater sig­nif­i­cance over the last decade, par­tic­u­larly where eth­i­cal con­sump­tion and adopt­ing more sus­tain­able choices are con­cerned. And while we are not all called to take the lead—or be like the Al Gores of the world, called to fight for bet­ter cor­po­rate gov­er­nance in ar­eas that im­pact so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal change—ev­ery one of us has a part to play. To quote famed Bri­tish ar­chae­ol­o­gist and writer TE Lawrence, “big things have small be­gin­nings”. We could start with sim­ple changes in habit, like opt­ing to do with­out straws and other sin­gle-use plas­tics or pri­ori­tis­ing our needs over our wants when plac­ing our order for din­ner. It’s an al­ready in­dul­gent life we lead, so the least we can do is to make sure our ap­petite for the finer things are in line with the best in­ter­est of the planet.
