Animal farming is often criticised for its negative impact on the environment, but it is important to recognise that not all animal farming practices are equal. “It’s not the cow, it’s the how”, goes the saying!
Sustainable livestock farming practices can sequester carbon from the atmosphere and improve soil health. Sustainable livestock farming can also promote biodiversity and protect natural habitats, help to create more resilient rural communities, increase access to healthy and sustainable food, and promote fair and equitable supply chains.
Through ruumi, sponsors can support livestock farmers who are committed to sustainable practices such as reducing chemical inputs, improving soil health, and optimising grazing patterns. By doing so, sponsors can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and play a role in mitigating the effects of climate change.
