Dairy as a climate solution? You heard that right! Companies like Perfect Day Foods, Eat Formo. Remilk Foods, Oatly, and many more are using their unique planet-saving technologies to transform the dairy industry.
Looking for ways to make an individual impact on climate change?
Taking a critical look at your dairy intake is a great place to start.
Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet.
According to Plos Climate, if the world were to end all meat and dairy production and move to strictly plant-based systems over the next 15 years, it would prevent enough greenhouse gas emissions to eliminate emissions from all other sectors for the next 30 to 50 years.
The NRDC adds to this with their research that found it takes 14 kilo-calories (kcal) of fossil fuels to produce a single kcal of dairy milk, whereas just 1 kcal of fossil fuels can produce 3.2 kcal of soybeans.
When we look big picture, the answer is obvious — we need to cut back on our dairy production/consumption.
Like most things ClimateTech, this doesn’t mean eliminating, it simply means reinventing.
Companies like Perfect Day, Formo, remilk, Better Dairy, and Oatly use their unique planet-saving technologies to transform the dairy industry and provide us with alternative products that make the transition away from dairy easier.
Various studies have shown that embracing low or zero-waste initiatives can significantly impact the environment.
Electrification of homes can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality. Electrification involves switching homes from natural gas-powered appliances to electric appliances, such as electric furnaces and electric water heaters
