The Eco Club sponsored a Sustainable Living and Cooking Workshop during Earth Week.

What does it mean to make a sustainable dish?

  • The less processed the better. Requires less energy to create and packaging to transport and is better for you.
  • Requires minimal resources to produce. Ex. Veggies require significantly less land and water to produce than animal products.
  • The lower on the food chain the more sustainable. Growing plants or animals to feed to other animals to grow them is very energy intensive/less sustainable.
  • Locally produced and healthy is more sustainable.
  • Organic will require fewer resources and have fewer impacts on health and environment than non-organic foods
  • Plan ahead to decrease food waste.
