Food


Green TEA focuses on how we shop, what we buy and what we can grow. 40% of the household carbon emissions in the UK come from food – higher than those of either energy or transport. Agriculture is hugely dependent on water, and a large amount of what we regard as ordinary every day food is flown halfway round the from the world. Green TEA promotes local and seasonal food and reducing waste.

If we all stopped wasting food which we could have eaten, the benefit to the planet would be the equivalent of taking one in five cars off the road. Wasting food costs the average family £700 per year.

In Eynsham we are supporting local growers, growing food and fruit in public spaces for anyone to share, and demonstrating just how delicious local and seasonal food can be.
