Eat sustainably in september

For many people, September is month zero, the true beginning of the year.

And we know what comes with a new year: a list of resolutions. A common resolution is to eat healthy and what if, in addition to eating healthier, we did this more sustainably?

This resolution includes several SDG: Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3); Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG 8); Reduce Inequalities (SDG 10); Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11); Responsible Production and Consumption (SDG 12).

How can we turn our food consumption into something sustainable?

We give you two options:

  1. Participate in a consumption group in your town. This practice is becoming more widespread. The consumption groups are made up of people who prefer to deal directly with producers instead of with large shopping centres. Buying seasonal products from farmers who are concerned the products you consume are not only from kilometre zero, but are healthy, fresh and quality products. There are many options and you can surely buy organic gift baskets through the shops located in your own neighbourhood.    

    BBK Azoka can help you with just one click. On its website, you will be able to quickly and easily purchase tasty and healthy food from different agricultural fairs. This online shop allows you to enjoy the best products from our farmers placed directly in your home and thereby support local production, opting for a responsible and sustainable consumption model.
  • Find out about the different urban gardens there are in your town. For example, there are almost 200 plots of land converted into municipal growing spaces just in Bilbao. Town Councils are making this service available to neighbourhood residents so they can practice ecological horticulture while enjoying contact with nature and sharing their experiences in the community, promoting sustainable development in urban settings.
  • Try buying less plastic, and reduce the impact of your daily shopping. Simply taking a cloth bag with you when you go shopping reduces the impact of this everyday task.
