Though some may balk at the proposal, eating insects can change the world for the better. They’re efficient to produce, healthy, and absolutely delicious. They take only 8-10% of the resources needed for the production of beef and emit 9% of the CO². Adopting them in our diet can help fight both world hunger & global warming. The Grasshopper Suppliers is a new initiative that’s aiming to kickstart a food revolution by breaking the main barrier preventing it: the cost of edible insects. Check out their infographic to learn more, and support them on Kickstarter!
