Impact on environment

Climate Justice | Z Game Changers

Health is not the only thing that rice damages. It is also bad for the environment. Rice is cultivated in paddy fields, which are flooded with water to prevent weed growth.

Low on oxygen, water which covers the soil produces perfect conditions for the anaerobic process of the microorganisms living in the ground. These organisms produce methane when there’s no oxygen access in the same way as they do in landfills and in cow’s stomach.
