The Story of Food

In this video, we will discuss the impact of choosing a beef burger as opposed to a plant-based burger.

We all eat food, that’s obvious. What’s less obvious is how our food choices might affect climate change. We can measure the carbon footprint of a country, a community, a household, or an individual person, and here, we’ll talk about a single choice an individual makes: choosing between a beef burger and a plant-based burger, to illustrate just how much of a difference this can make.

Discussion: What stood out to you from the video? Did anything surprise you?
