12 ways to phase fossil fuels out of your life – Positive News


9. Tweak your diet

Mixing up the menu at home could deliver a 36% reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions compared to the average UK diet – without ditching meat and dairy.

That’s according to the WWF’s recent Eating for Net Zero report, which formulates a diet that doesn’t deviate drastically from current British eating habits, but is much kinder to the planet – and costs the same to buy.

“Achieving a healthy, sustainable diet is possible – without everyone having to go vegetarian, vegan, or give up treats,” says Tanya Steele, CEO of WWF-UK.

Though organic produce often costs more to buy, making the switch will mean fossil fuel fertilisers were not used in the production of your food. And buying local and seasonal will cut down on food miles. Better still, plant and save seeds and grow your own as a form of resistance to the broken food system. Or join one of the many community gardens springing up in towns and cities. 

If you’re hungry to campaign on the issue, follow the example set by the people of Hull, England, who persuaded the authorities to let people grow produce on unused council land – a big boost for the burgeoning ‘right to grow’ movement.
