Eco Bible Is Your Guide to More Sustainable Food

Sustainable Food Is Locally Sourced

Our world produces enough food for every person on earth, and yet nearly 820 million people go hungry and two billion remain malnourished.

Many of today’s large corporations buy agricultural land from indigenous people, then leave the local population without sufficient means to feed themselves.

Sustainable Food Doesn’t Waste Resources

Modern technology has given us many ways of extending the shelf-life and expanding the transportability of food products.

Yet, according to the UN, about one third of all food in the world is lost or goes to waste.

Sustainable Food Is Diverse

We need diversity for sustainability, both in the animal kingdom and in the human world.

Rabbi Benjamin Weiner writes, “Going back to the land – learning to grow a large portion of my family’s food with regenerative techniques, drawing sustenance from the parcel of earth where we make our home while also doing my best to restore it as habitat to birds and bees, bears and butterflies – has felt… like liberation.”

Eco Bible Addresses These Challenges with Positivity and Hope

“Almost as soon as I began reading, I knew that the Eco Bible would be a long term companion for me as I work to care for God’s creation and encourage other people of faith to do the same. Most communities of environmentalists I’ve encountered are heavily burdened by grim predictions of the future, which create an atmosphere of pessimism and disillusionment. What is unique to a Biblical perspective is hope, the “knowledge that we can choose; that we can learn from our mistakes and act differently next time.” The focus of environmentalism in the Eco Bible is completely different from a secular sense of hopelessness: here there is a spiritual conviction that we can and must turn from our destructive actions and live as we were created to: in peaceful, mutually beneficial flourishing with all that is.”
