It feels like hardly anyone kicks off the new year by giving up the booze these days; instead, countless social media posts and column inches are dedicated to the clash of two climate-focussed food campaigns, Regenuary versus Veganuary.
As the month draws to a close, I wanted to write a few words on a debate which seems to be splitting its audiences right down the middle.
But in the rush to ‘pick a side’ – are we risking missing the point?
It’s impossible to ignore the fact that the way we choose to shop has a huge impact on the world around us; so cutting down on our own ‘single use footprint’ is a simple and effective way to make a difference.

If you’ve made it one of your 2021 resolutions to try and eat more seasonal, local produce – these monthly blog posts are for you.
