Vegetables have become a big part of our diets in the last 20 years, and the amount of land used to grow them has increased.
Now, we’re finding that our vegetable choices can be less environmentally friendly than we thought.
Vegetables are not only a great source of protein, but also a great alternative to meat.
It’s been estimated that if we replaced all the food we eat with vegetables, the greenhouse gas emissions would fall by 70%.
That means our greenhouse gas output is about 1,500 times smaller than it would have been if we had been eating meat and dairy.
A lot of the time, it’s a matter of finding the right vegetable to take home, and there are many on sale in our supermarket.
But there are also some good and tasty ones to look out for.
