What's your foodprint? A guide to sustainable eating 24.1.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health I learned a lot of lessons growing up in southern Saskatchewan -- and most were related to using resources respectfully, eating healthy, and producing and buying food responsibly. I didn't realize it at the time (and the debates about climate change and carbon emissions were a few decades off for sure when I was a kid) but I was learning to live sustainably, before the word became trendy. I can still remember the long rows of potatoes we dreaded planting each spring, weeding throughout the hot Prairie summer, and harvesting in the sometimes really cold days of early fall. And I still remember my dad dropping off a few extra bags to appreciative families who didn't have a garden and were a bit down on their luck. While my mother never canned fruits or vegetables, I remember some of my aunts canning as much fresh produce as they possibly could, given the room they had on the shelf. What we eat definitely has climate impact but there is often more than meets the eye when you start calculating ...

Cyber Monday you’ve met your match. What China’s consumerism means for our planet. 27.11.2017 Main Feed - Environmental Defense
By Xixi Chen Happy Cyber Monday everyone. For those of us who didn’t break the bank on Black Friday, we’re filling up our online shopping carts with Cyber Monday sales – seeing if we can break new records of consumerism. I know I am. Last year’s Cyber Monday was the biggest day in the history of U.S. e-commerce, totaling $3.45 billion in online purchases. That’s an enormous amount of money. But it’s just a drop in the bucket compared to the $25 billion spent on China’s Singles Day – a recording-breaking day for sales. What started as an anti-Valentine’s day holiday for single Chinese people, Singles Day makes our Black Friday and Cyber Monday look like any ordinary day of shopping. Singles Day has become the world’s largest online shopping holiday. When you look at China’s population, it’s no surprise they out-shopped us. The economy is made up of 500 million middle class consumers – an exploding population – all of which are embracing the convenience and material abundance of consumerism. Are we killing ...
