It was World Environment Day on the 5th of June and in the 21st century, there’s never been a more important time to get involved and interested in the wellbeing of our planet.
World Environment day is an international campaign that works to promote awareness for the current environmental crisis humankind faces. Due to the urbanisation and destruction of most of the world’s wildlife habitats and the increasing amount of pollution created by our industries and modern lifestyle, the earth is warming up. This global heating has devastating consequences such as climate change, a loss of species and increased intensity and occurrences of natural disasters.
The South African government acknowledges the importance of World Environmental Day and announced its theme for this year to be Think.Eat.Save. Food production emits a quarter of the world’s total greenhouse gases and according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 1.3 billion tonnes of this food then goes to waste every year. Processed foods require a large amount of energy and packaging (mostly non-biodegradable plastics) to produce and the result is often packed with chemicals additives that are not only harmful to the environment, but also ourselves.
Therefore, to show your support for World Environment Day this year, try focus on supporting brands that use sustainable production methods and a strong commitment to the environment. One brand that is committed to clean and eco-friendly food manufacturing processes is Eat Real Snacks. Eat Real Snacks is a company that produces vegan, artificial colourant and preservative free snacks made with real ingredients and with their impact on the environment in mind.
The snacks come in four different bases (Lentil, Hummus, Quinoa and Veggie) and an assortment of flavours that ensures that everyone finds their own favourite. The snacks come in small singles or in larger packs so whether you want a small treat for yourself or want to share with friends, Eat Real has you covered. World Environment Day is on the 5th of June so get excited, get ready, and get involved in celebrating our incredible earth with a quick swap to this convenient, clean, eco-friendly, delicious Eat Real Snack – the environment will thank you for it!
