What you eat matters! It matters to your health and to the health of the planet. Food is a huge part of our daily lives, holidays, and ultimately, our cultural identity. Food is one of our basic needs as living beings. Therefore, food needs to be produced for consumption and will inevitably have an effect on the environment. The current way of food production is unsustainable.

In this section, we want to help you reduce the environmental impact of the food you eat. To do this, we have provided you with practical tips you can implement in your daily life if you so choose, along with helpful information, which can have a big effect on your environmental footprint. We’ll start with how to limit food waste, how to grow your own food at home, where to buy organic food in Tampere and, for those of you who shop online, where to buy more sustainable food online. We will also show you some healthy and more sustainable recipes, which we hope will inspire you as well.
