BABz isn't just good for you,
it's good for the world too.
Carbon dioxide contributes to global warming by adding to the greenhouse effect, which drastically stresses and damages our environment. The United Nations Food and Agricalture Organization (FAO) states that livestock production is responsible for approximately 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
This shows that the process of meat production emits more greenhouse gas emissions than growing and consuming vegetables and fruits. An Oxford University study suggests that a single person going on the plant-based diet can save up to 1.24 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
No refrigeration needed
Food transport refrigeration is a critical link of the food supply chain, but it also has a harmful effect on the environment. TRUs (Transport Refrigeration Units) run on diesel fuel, which is dangerous to the planet and its human population. Not only does diesel emit CO2, a greenhouse gas, it contributes to air pollution, which causes human health issues,
Choosing an option like BABz, which is shelf-stable and doesn't require refrigeration during transport, can help reduce CO2 emissions and air pollution, And because BABz does not contain water, only the nutrition is shipped, no water weight!
One-third of all food produced in the world (approximately 1.3 billion tonnes) is lost or wasted every year. Globally, if food waste could be represented as its own country, it would be the third largest greenhouse gas emitter, behind China and the United States. In the U. S. alone, an estimated 133 billion pounds of edible food goes to waste every year.
BABz is a good option for reducing your personal food waste as it's shelf-stable, which means you're not going to find it going bad in the back of your fridge.
