Ok, bear with us a little bit and nerd out for a second. Wild habitats are being squeezed out to make way for commercial farming, and it’s not ok.
71% of our planet is habitable land, and out of that 50% is being used for commercial farming. 50%! 77% of that 50 is livestock, and 23% is used for crops.
That leaves only 37% for natural ecosystems. That means that big agriculture is one of humanity’s largest impacts on our environment. Because of the destruction of biodiversity every time a natural ecosystem is demolished, 28,000 species are estimated to be threatened. As humans, we rely on so many species for the survival of the environment, as we know it!
You can actively reduce that impact through dietary changes. We urge everyone to eat less commercially farmed meats, livestock, and dairy! Supplement it with plant-based foods! And secondly, support technology that is sustainable, and saves land!
Within each of our shipping containers, we can fit almost 3 acres of farmland! On our current warehouse concrete lot, we will house 16 fulling operational farms. That means on one city block you will find 48 acres of farmland. We hope we can work towards giving some of that land back to nature.
