IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT FOOD!
Everyone knows that Earth is a globe. This means that every element (water, air, soil and anything else we can or can’t name it) on Earth is connected, therefore every human being is connected, we are connected! There are7.1 billion of us sharing this beautiful planet. So IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT FOOD!
When we think about food, we ask ourselves the following questions: what is food? What do we need to eat vs what do we love/like/hate to eat? Who produces our food? Where do we get our food? When do we get our food? How much do we eat vs how much do we want/love to eat? We truly need to think GLOBALLY on Food, Environment, Climate, and Sustainability.
We all know that we cannot slow down the imbalance of food distribution alone around the world, nor could we solve the “hunger” problem alone. So what can we do? First, I like to say that I am honored to “meet” everyone at here. Second, I like to say that if every one of us could pause for 1-2 seconds a day, and really think for this moment and see what impact “I” can have as an individual, we will have a compounded power of 7.1 billion!
For a simple example, the USDA guideline suggests that an adult requires about ~2000 kcal per day. This energy needs 2000 liters water to produce. Then if we can apply a follow-up question on how much water “I” can save today on wash hands, showering, and cleaning? If “I” can save 0.1 liter (0.42 cup) water today, there are 1.25 billion of us living in the developed region. Then, The total daily water saving is 0.1 liter x 1.25 billion = 0.12 billion liters! This way of thinking will have compounding power and impact on my daily habits.
Of course, I would like to promote the same logically thinking and hope that this can have a profound lasting impact to Earth, our beloved planet for many generations to come and enjoy!
