Sustainability: what can we do as healthcare professionals?
I’ve recently listened to an audio book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver, where the Kingsolver family tries for a year to consume food only produced by them or their near neighbours.
It’s a thought-provoking book, including the startling statistics on how much of the price paid for a product goes to the initial producer and how much more goes to the supply chain. It ends with Kingsolver explaining not everyone needs to go to the extremes her family did, but that everyone can do something. Some changes in behaviour might seem small but collectively they add up to something significant.
