Ecoterian: save the planet, one meal at a time!

Would you like to change your eating habits to benefit the climate, but have no idea how to go about it? Would you like to learn more about your contribution to a more sustainable planet? Moreover, do you have a smartphone? Then you are the Ecoterian we are looking for!

Your diet has a huge impact on our climate. As an environmentally conscious VUB student you would like to pay attention to what you eat. But how do you go about that? Changing your diet can be quite a challenge. Several VUB students found out that it is not that simple to learn how to eat vegetarian (vegan). Questions such as: "Is eating meat really that bad for the environment?" "What about dairy products?" "And if you stop eating those, what should I eat to stay healthy?" "Which vegetables do I eat in which season?" and a host of other questions often have no clear-cut answer.

That is why a few VUB employees decided to bundle all information on one platform: Ecoterian. In this way, the project responds to the shortage of hands-on solutions for people like you who want to reduce their impact on the climate. Thanks to the guidance provided by the app, you too can make an important contribution to restoring our climate. For example, the program supports you to already reduce your diet by 70 percent! This is done in a scientifically supported way, while ensuring that your consumed diet meets what is currently considered a healthy diet. In addition, you will find lots of free recipes on the app that will give your environmentally conscious diet a tasty boost. Are you hungry for more? Then don't hesitate and join Ecoterian! All this great information will soon be launched on one great app. It is under construction. 

Take action and plant some trees

To be able to launch this amazing product, a budget is of course needed and a crowdfunding campaign was set up for this purpose. Part of the incomes, in turn, went to a sustainable cause: investing in trees. Last year, Ecotarian 'sold' 250 trees in this way. And these are now being planted, on 19 December in Aarschot. Would you like to help? Roll up your sleeves and fill in the form below, because Ecotarian needs you.

Ecoterian needs you!
