June 18 - Sustainable Gastronomy Day

Posted on June 18, 2020

Buy from small, local suppliers.

Buy from small farmers who use sustainable farming techniques.

Cook fresh rather than buying processed food.

Buy foods in season. 

Up-cycle food.

Use recyclable packaging.

Eat leftovers! Don't produce large amounts of food waste.

These are some of the basics of eating sustainably. 

If you plan meals ahead, you can avoid food waste AND save money.

Remember, you don't have to change everything about how and what you eat right away, and you don't have to be perfect. Slowly chip away at these goals, eating better and better and better. 

Nobody's perfect! Forgive yourself if you need occasional junk food. No biggie if you do take-out once in a while - although it might make sense to look for a take-out restaurant that buys and cooks sustainably. (Check out Too Good To Go.) You may have good health or other reasons that require you to order some specialized food items from far away. 

Do what you can, and if EVERYBODY tries to do what they can, too, what a difference it would make!

Also, consider donating to a sustainable-farming organization. Check out this article.
