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.
