What do you do with your leftover food?

  • Over 3.27 million tonnes of food in the UAE is wasted annually? That's enough to feed over 7 million people! But it's not just about the numbers. Food waste also impacts our environment through greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Amazing! Wasting food means wasting the resources that went into producing it, such as water, energy, and labor. This puts unnecessary pressure on our natural resources and contributes to environmental degradation.

  • Great! Responsible consumption is essential for the environment and our health: larger portions can consume more calories than necessary, resulting in health problems.

How do you commute to work?

  • Fantastic! Your choice reduces the impact of toxic pollutants on the environment and conserves the usage of fuels that harm the environment.

  • Good job! Research has shown that electric cars are better for the environment as they emit fewer greenhouse gases and air pollutants as compared to petrol or diesel cars.

  • Uh-oh! Fuel engines produce pollutants that harm the environment and contribute to rising global temperatures. Try limiting your car usage by exploring alternatives, such as sharing rides with family, co-workers or friends, or choosing to commute through public buses / metro, or even riding a bike / electric scooter!

How often do you consume red meat?

  • Amazing! People who don't eat red meat and reduce their consumption will have a lower risk of heart disease and increased overall health benefits

  • Good going! Excessive red meat consumption results in increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Plus, the production of red meat also significantly impacts the environment.

  • Excessive red meat consumption has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. It also impacts the environment by consuming more water than other food sources. Consider reducing animal-based products a few times a week. Data shows that if a UAE resident refrained from meat two days a week, it would save the equivalent of their water consumption for an entire year.

What bag do you use when buying groceries from the store?

  • Thank you for helping protect the ecosystem!

  • A grocery delivery service can cut carbon emissions by half, but the packaging still generates waste.
