NUTS for the Planet
Friends, are you looking for ways to reduce your carbon footprint while still enjoying one of your favorite foods? We expound often about the benefits of eating nuts, but did you know that eating nuts can have a positive impact on the environment? That’s right - nuts are not just good for you, they are good for the planet!
Although nuts require a large amount of water, it’s only one factor that goes into the overall production of nuts. Other factors to consider are greenhouse gas emissions and the amount of pollution generated from the production process. Given what it takes to produce nuts, they have a substantially lower toll on the environment, especially when compared to other foods such as animal-based proteins. In fact, nuts top the list of environmentally friendly foods.
