Staying Sustainable 

The Dos and Don’ts of Sustainable Eating


Solar panels are no longer just for the rich. Organic produce can easily be found inside massive supermarket chains. People are becoming more and more aware of their actions and how they affect the environment. And sustainable foods? It’s another delicious trend in a long line of eco-friendly, foodie-driven initiatives. 

“With sustainable agriculture, efficiency is what you’re trying to reach,” stated Vonda Richardson, the director of FAMU’s cooperative extension — an outreach program from the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences. “This can be achieved by using the most efficient mix of inputs in order to get a desired result. Sustainable farming is important because it helps maintain resources and doesn’t pollute or contaminate what we have. I like to call it a ‘common sense approach’ in looking out for the planet.”

Growing sustainably has environmental advantages and many health benefits as well. By eating sustainably, you eliminate a variety of chemicals from your diet, including food additives and antibiotic resistant material. 

Still curious? Here’s a list of the top five most sustainable foods — and their lesser counterparts.
