Consumption

Our food system, and especially our consumption patterns, affect not only our own wellbeing but also that of our descendants and people in the global South. Many people are already aware of this but seek ideas for increasing their own environmental awareness and for behaving more justly through their own consumption patterns. To draw more attention to these complex topics, Biovision is committed to raising awareness, especially among young people, about their purchasing and consumption behaviors and provides practical tips for more sustainability in everyday life.
