Crispy crickets? Or: Is insect food really an option?

“The market for edible insect-based food products is projected to grow rapidly in the next few years and forecasted to produce about 260,000 tonnes by 2030.”* Which will then probably be eaten. Can you imagine? Crickets, mealworms, grasshoppers as alternative protein sources (so-called APQs) to meat and soy?

Let’s talk about money.

Strategic consumption, organic coffee, separating waste, using public transportation, eating less meat, taking cold showers – each and every one of us can do something about the climate crisis and make the world a little better.

We’re starting a little series here that will give you an – at least rough – insight into the world of green, sustainable money while you’re having your morning coffee.
