He didn't buy food for over a year; instead, he learned to grow and forage his own food in the quest of eating more sustainably. Rob Greenfield embarked on the Food Freedom project to inspire people to be more critical of where their food is coming from. The global food system contributes approximately one-quarter of human-made greenhouse gases each year. Greenfield began growing and foraging all of his food on Nov 11, 2018. Greenfield says he grew more than 100 different foods and foraged more than 200 foods from nature. The environmental activist has undertaken extreme projects before. He doesn’t expect people to replicate his experiment, but hopes it can inspire people to make small choices that go a long way — ones that more environmentally friendly and will not contribute to the climate crisis. Here are 5 tips on how to eat more sustainably: eat local, eat food that in unpackaged, eat unprocessed foods, eat organic, and grow a bit of your own food.

    "Edible Landscaping" What a brilliant phrase! I love this guy and what's he's accomplished and for his education on healthy eating and the environment!

    We could turn our entire planet into a giant garden with all kinds of plants and crops and make it so that nobody ever has to go hungry again. We decided to turn this world into a waste land where food is hoarded and people are forced to compete to survive. That was our choice. Now we can either choose to die in a global fire, or we can actually take care of our planet. I have a feeling we will collectively choose to die, though.

    Growing up in Dominica (not the Dominican republic) that's how we ate. All our food was grown.

    Well I tried planting a pizza, a taco, a hamburger and some French fries but all that grew from it was raccoons and squrells. Oh well, guess I'll have to grubhub something.

    Greta job. I would like to do something like that. What would you say is the top 10 foods to grow or that YOU grew? Top ten as in healthy, Substantial, filling etc. And only fish for protein? No chicken or beef?

    The human body still requires animal fats and proteins. You can not avoid it. The real issue is people (American's Exspecialy) over indulge when it comes to foods. If everyone only ate a single 10oz steak, instead of the 20oz rib-eye, it would dramatically cut down on the demand and therefore cut down the need to supply.

    This is a really stupid thing to promote to people, people don't do this anymore because there's a whole lot of people now and in the recent centuries there's a whole lot of new jobs that need to be done. There's more to worry about than just food and shelter.
