Recently, Carlos Petrini, the founder of the Slow Foods movement, has been incorporating the concept of food sovereignty in his social discourse. To some food activists, this is a logical consequence of Slow Food’s opposition to the industrial agi-foods complexes controlling our food systems. Others, dismiss the statements as superficial (and the movement as elitist). Still others find Petrini’s position a welcome surprise, and await further developments. Can Slow Food—a movement reknowned for it’s gourmet food and well-heeled consumers advance a broad-based notion like food sovereignty?
Slow Food : Inching towards Food Sovereignty?
A sustainable life is not that difficult. Whether it is your room, your hotel or your B&B you can choose to arrange it in an ecological way while enjoying various advantages. On the one hand, you are doing good for the environment by reducing the impact on the planet. On the other hand, you will reduce your waste, minimize consumption… and save money!
This waste pollutes our environment and above all prevents the reuse of waste and reduces the abundance of resources as well. Make a commitment to create a place to sort your waste: perhaps outside or on a balcony and to better avoid unwanted odours, dispose of it regularly. Also be careful with the cooking oil used at home! If you dispose of them in the sewers, it can cause serious damage to the environment: it must be carried out at the appropriate collection points on the territory.
