Stop eating beef, pork and chicken and our environmental problems will be solved. At least that’s what films like Cowspiracy want you to believe. Make no mistake about it, farm animals have a huge environmental footprint. But, in fact, when you consider everything we eat and the way we eat it, meat and other animal products barely scratch the surface.

In this episode of The Foodcast, we look at the big picture and explore how the entire farm-to-table lifecycle effects our planet. Maybe the farm isn’t the best place to start. Then, I speak to three entrepreneurs who are focusing on a different and very sensible place and they’re doing so in an innovative way. All this and the usual shenanigans right here on The Foodcast.
