A Belgian federal campaign to make citizens and businesses aware of biodiversity-related issues.
I eat local and in season
I avoid transporting goods, mainly by boat, and, by doing so, I limit noise and water pollution in the marine environment. In this way, I contribute e.g. to preserving whales.
I only buy the food I need.
I limit food waste and, therefore, the agricultural area needed as well as the risks of deforestation. In this way, I contribute to the preservation of primates in tropical forests.
I buy my food in bulk and I choose foods with as little packaging as possible.
I limit the pollution of rivers, seas and oceans by plastic waste. In this way, I contribute to the preservation of seabirds.
I eat less meat.
I limit the risks of deforestation as I limit my contribution to climate change and the agricultural area needed for food. In this way, I contribute to preserving the beautiful savannah of Brazil.
I choose foods by favouring production methods that respect biodiversity (labels, sustainable production, no pesticides).
I limit the pollution of ecosystems, particularly agricultural ecosystems, by chemicals. In this way, I contribute to preserving birds and insects in our countryside.
I use different guides to choose my food.
limit the overexploitation of species by using, for example, the WWF fish guide. In this way, I help preserve marine turtles.
I prefer less processed foods.
I limit ingredients and products resulting from deforestation, such as palm oil, or linked to agricultural pollution. In this way, I contribute to the survival of orangutans and the preservation of their habitat.
I use a flask and I choose reusable straws.
I limit the pollution of rivers, seas and oceans by plastic waste. In this way, I contribute to preserving the seabed.
I convince others to do the same.
