Pulses reduce the
footprint of your grocery cart.

We all care about the impact that we have on the environment. ‘Sustainable consumption’ makes sense as a global priority. As businesses and consumers search for ways to ‘go green’, it makes sense to focus on activities that we all do on a regular basis, like eat. Shifting our consumption to sustainable food systems with an emphasis on crop production is a big part of knowing that we are making a personal contribution to ‘going green’ by eating ‘planet –friendly’ food.

Pulse Canada has been examining how peas, lentils, beans and chickpeas can contribute to a more sustainable food system. This website will help you to understand what Canadian farmers and scientists already know: pulses have a big part to play in improving the sustainability of agriculture. By growing more pulses, farmers are doing their part. You can too; please read on to see how eating pulses has a positive impact on the environment!
