Not only can we all reduce our climate impact and improve our health by eating locally-grown vegetables instead of junk food, but also regenerative farming practices are our best hope to sequester large amounts of carbon quickly.
Eating a diet rich in locally-grown organic vegetables is healthier and reduces the carbon emissions of your food.
Regenerative farming methods have been shown to increase the carbon stored in the soil dramatically. If you eat meat, source it from local regenerative farms. Reducing the amount of meat you eat can free up budget for the increased cost. Order the vegetarian option when eating out, to avoid contributing to the carbon emissions of conventional animal agriculture.
Organic gardening is a healthy hobby and you'll love the taste of the fresh vegetables and fruit you can grow! Even if all you have room for is a container garden of lettuces or herbs, it is worth it.

Food waste is a significant contributor to carbon emissions in the US. Vermicomposting is a great option for folks who don't have the space or climate for an outdoor compost pile.
