Why 1%?

Zero Foodprint HQ in the United States has been analyzing restaurants’ carbon footprints since 2015, and findings suggest that adding a charge of 1% towards regenerative farming, also sometimes called carbon farming, would accomplish as much environmental benefit as offsetting the estimated impact from the restaurant’s operation. But 1% makes a lot of sense on a global scale as well: According to scientists and climate experts who analyzed 80 climate solutions for Project Drawdown (2017), implementing drawdown projects around the world would cost $27T/year through 2050 (when we really, really need to be carbon neutral), or about 0.98% of the global GDP which we have rounded up to 1% as a general guide.

What does food have to do with climate change?

More than you'd think! Eating is the most significant interaction most of us have with the environment. The food system contributes about half of all greenhouse gas emissions around the world. Between agriculture (~13%), deforestation (~18%), and food processing/storage/manufacture/waste (~17%), it all adds up. Solving problems in our food system and turning them into benefits may be the most practical way to reverse global warming. According to Project Drawdown, food and land use offer 15 of the top 20 solutions to climate change and we believe that a renewable food system ought to be society’s top priority.
