The way our food is produced, transported, prepared, and disposed of has a profound impact on our environment, and directly affects public health. Sports fans are increasingly focusing on the impacts of our food supply and for good reason. There are many things that iconic sports institutions and their millions of fans can do to promote healthier, ecologically intelligent food systems.
Genuinely sustainable agriculture maintains the resilience of the entire ecosystem. It respects our invaluable water supply, supports biodiversity -- the birds, bees, and countless macro and microorganisms -- that maintain the health of our planet. Sports venues and concessionaires have a unique opportunity to embrace better practices and raise awareness about environmentally preferable decisions that promote more sustainable agriculture.
