Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) 101 – A Simplified Guide to Developing a Carbon Footprint Estimation for Your Farm

This book was written by JBE Manager, Senior Technical Consultant and Environmental Coach, John M. Beath, for those interested in constructing a carbon footprint. It’s purpose is to clearly and effectively:

-Takes you step-by-step through the carbon footprint development process (there aren’t may references out there that really do this – and those that do, rarely show their work)
-Shows you how to get a footprint done without using LCA modeling software (many consider this a barrier to learning the process)
-Acquaints you with the key drivers for a farm footprint and how to measure them

Cam Pascual’s Fight Against Food Waste and Hunger in America

JBE Sustainability Consultant, Cam Pascual, became passionate about the issue of food waste after becoming jaded with the world during her time as a college student. She decided to approach the issue from a new perspective, banding together friends to create the Food Recovery Network. Cam was a cofounder and the Director of Innovation at Food Recovery Network, a nonprofit that unites college students across the country in recovering the surplus, unsold food from food businesses and donating it to hunger-fighting nonprofits. Since cofounding Food Recovery Network in 2011, the organization has grown to become the largest student movement against hunger with chapters at 230 colleges in 46 states (plus DC) and has recovered more than 4 million pounds of food.
