Day 8 of the 14 Day Cattai Challenge – Grow Your Own Food

Today’s tip is about the benefits of growing your own food for the environment from home!

Benefits include:
🌱 Reducing food miles, emissions and food waste (from being damaged during transport and being rejected by Supermarkets due to aesthetics)
🌱 Reducing the use of plastic packaging
🌱 Avoids the use of pesticides and synthetic fertilisers on our food
🌱 Prevents large areas of bushland being cut down to make way for Agriculture, therefore also protecting our Native Wildlife’s habitat 🐨 🌳
