There have been enough Netflix documentaries going viral for us to know by now that going vegetarian or vegan is one of the best steps an individual can take in reducing their carbon footprint. And whilst going full cold turkey is too big an ask for many, the growth of ‘flexitarianism’ has been impressive to see.
Aiming for more vegetarian food throughout the week is the place to start – try ordering a fruit and veg box to inspire you. If you want to feel particularly virtuous, we’d recommend Oddbox – their beautiful produce is rescued surplus from farms that would otherwise go to waste. Riverford Organics are one of the original fruit and veg box pioneers, with unparalleled organic produce grown and delivered from their farm in Devon.
In our experience, approaching fish and meat consumption as a treat rather than the norm results in tastier Sunday roasts and trips to our favourite restaurants. Where you do eat meat, look to source it from your local butcher (where they can provide more details on the quality and sustainability of the produce) or from the likes of the Ethical Butcher, who support regenerative agriculture and source grass-fed, organic produce to be delivered direct to your door.
