The upcoming March for Science is an opportunity to push for evidence-based solutions. But real change comes not from placard-waving, but from the tireless, low-profile actions we each take every day at work, in town hall meetings and in our homes.
Daniel Vennard chats about the work of the Better Buying Lab in working with consumers and producers to shift diets towards healthier, more ecologically sound foods.
The current terminology used to describe plant-based dining options is less than appetizing. Some food marketers are changing the narrative.
For Americans looking to affect change in an erratic political landscape, the food system is a good place to start.
Last year brought huge political shocks to the environment and development communities. During WRI’s Annual Stories to Watch event, Andrew Steer highlighted how these trends may affect U.S. and international climate policy, business and investment, global energy markets and more this year.
WRI experts explain how reducing food waste, getting creative with leftovers and embracing plant-based foods can lower your environmental impact this Turkey Day.
In an episode of Years of Living Dangerously, Gisele Bündchen and Andrew Steer reveal that producing meat and dairy makes up almost 85 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions from the American diet. Shifting to more plant-based foods can make a big impact.
What lessons from marketing can we apply to the problem of getting men to eat less meat? Better Buying Lab director Daniel Vennard discusses.
Initiative brings together Google, Sainsbury’s, Hilton Worldwide, Quorn and more to promote sustainable food consumption,
New WRI research shows that Americans can cut their diets' environmental footprints in half just by eating less meat and dairy. Janet Ranganathan and Richard Waite explain this and other findings in a new podcast.
WRI released Shifting Diets for a Sustainable Food Future in April 2016, finding that for people who consume high amounts of meat and dairy, shifting to diets with a greater share of plant-based foods could significantly reduce agriculture’s pressure on the environment. Below, we respond to some queries about the methods and findings.
This analysis shows how, among high-consuming populations, the three diet shifts could significantly reduce per person agricultural land use and greenhouse gas emissions.
