January is key on the calendar by two events related to the environment: World Environmental Education Day and International Reducing CO2 Emissions Day. Both are focus on the importance of caring for the environment by reducing particle pollution, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), and therefore reducing the environmental footprint.
Did you know that agriculture is, along with transports and industries, one of the sectors that generates the most CO2? Carbon dioxide for itself is not harmful, since it is a natural and essential gas for the Earth’s life cycle. However, when there is an excessive accumulation in the atmosphere, it influences the environment, human health, and ecosystem stability. For instance, it affects the air quality we breathe, it can contribute to increased droughts and floods, or modify the migration patterns of animals.
The situation is reversible! It only requires producing in a more sustainable way. Vertical farming is the innovative method we use at Urbanfresh, involving cultivating food in vertically structures in controlled environments specifically designed for this purpose. This approach has several positive points on reducing polluting emissions:
- We reduce emissions with a shorter supply chain.
- We guarantee fresh products without pesticides or toxins.
- We exclusively use certified renewable energy.
Our own vertical farming model is evident both in the environment and in your kitchen. It is an efficient production based on quality and health, that reduces food waste along with the environmental footprint. It guarantees of fresh, recently harvested products from the plantation to table in minutes – what we call real km.0 products. A more sustainable present and future!
