A more sustainable way of eating

A more sustainable way of eating

This month with the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, the world’s leading climate scientists delivered their starkest warning yet about the deepening climate emergency, with some of the changes already set in motion thought to be “irreversible”.

In a nutshell, the report outlines that global warming is happening, it is “unequivocally” caused by greenhouse gas emissions from human activities, and the impacts are very bad (in some cases, catastrophic) – at 2 degrees Celsius of global warming, the report says heat extremes would often reach critical tolerance thresholds for agriculture and health.

The report further warns that limiting global warming to 1.5, or even 2, degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels “will be beyond reach” in the next 20 years without immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.

The IPCC says that “strong and sustained” reductions of carbon emissions would limit climate change, and go hand in hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society with clear benefits to both humans and natural ecosystems.

It’s a message that hasn’t changed much since the first IPCC report in 1990.

Whilst it is a gargantuan task that may feel beyond any of our control - every fraction of a degree of warming we can prevent by curbing emissions can work to reduce the damage. 

A more sustainable way of eating

Australia’s current food system is a major challenge when it comes to reducing carbon (CO2) emissions, with the sector contributing 17% of all CO2 emissions, or 100M tonnes, per year. 

What’s more, half of all fruit and vegetables produced are wasted (that’s 3.7 trillion apples), and traditional agriculture and farming uses 50-70% of all water consumed in Australia. 

So we made it our mission to invent a way for everyone - regardless of space, time, income, or experience - to grow their own food quickly and easily. It is an idea that benefits our homes and our global environment by making it easy for everyone to live more sustainably and have a meaningful impact:

  • Growing your own with an Airgarden eliminates the heavy transportation involved in getting food to your plate, reducing your CO2 emissions by 95% when compared to buying produce from the supermarket
  • Growing with an Airgarden uses 98% less water than traditional gardening and farming thanks to its closed-loop technology which continuously recycles water within the system
  • Growing your own means you eliminate food wastage in your household, as you simply harvest and eat as you need. 
  • You also get to control what gets put into your garden, meaning no harmful pesticides and chemicals

We are uncompromising in our mission to help create a greener and more sustainable future, working to reduce the harmful impacts of industrialised agriculture, and have designed the Airgarden as a scalable system which can make growing food accessible for everyone.

Together, we can use this innovation to help curb the impact of climate change and create a healthier planet.
