BeBiodiversity I eat

A Belgian federal campaign to make citizens and businesses aware of biodiversity-related issues.

I eat

I eat local.

I avoid transporting goods, mainly by boat, and, by doing so, I limit noise and water pollution in the marine environment. I reduce my impact on climate change and limit the spread of invasive species. In this way, I contribute e.g. to preserving whales and wild bees.

I avoid wasting food by buying only what I need.

I reduce the agricultural area needed for food and, by doing so, I limit the risks of deforestation. In this way, I contribute to the preservation of primates in tropical forests.

I buy my food in bulk and avoid foods packed in three different plastic layers.

I limit the pollution of rivers, seas and oceans by plastic waste. In this way, I contribute to the preservation of seabirds.

I do not eat much meat.

I limit my contribution to climate change and the agricultural area needed for food, and therefore the risks of deforestation. In this way, I contribute to preserving the beautiful savannah of Brazil.

I choose foods carefully and favour production methods that respect biodiversity (labels, sustainable production, no pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals that are hazardous to health and nature).

I limit the pollution of ecosystems, particularly agricultural ecosystems, by chemicals. In this way, I contribute to preserving the birds of our countryside.

I refer to different guides to choose my food.

By using, for example, the WWF fish guide, I limit the overexploitation of species. In this way, I help preserve marine turtles.

I avoid heavily processed foods.

I avoid ingredients whose origin and production methods are not known to me. I limit products resulting from deforestation or linked to agricultural pollution. In this way, I contribute to the survival of orangutans and the preservation of their habitat, victims of deforestation in Indonesia, mainly for the cultivation of palm oil.

I use compost for my organic waste.

I limit soil and air pollution associated with landfilling or incineration of my waste. In this way, I help preserve the precious insects in our countryside.

I drink tap water and use a flask, and I say NO to plastic straws.

I limit the pollution of rivers, seas and oceans by plastic waste. In this way, I contribute to preserving the seabed.

I find lots of other ideas to preserve biodiversity and share my experience with those around me.

I visit www.1001pourlabiodiversite.be to find lots of smart tips. In this way, I participate in preserving biodiversity.
