Women are responsible for around 70% consumer purchasing, when women make such a vast amount of decisions it only makes sense for them to be in positions of power.
7. Sustainable Food
The food industry/agriculture is responsible for 25% of emissions. Farming creates a vast amount of greenhouse gases because of the animals themselves and the way they are farmed. A lot of food products are imported from other countries, the transportation of these creates greenhouse gases. Sustainable food consumption can be sustainable, finding meat and fish alternatives or reducing consumption can reduce the effect on the environment. Also finding food that is locally or ethically sourced can also help push towards sustainable living.
