For one year Rob Greenfield grew and foraged all of his own food. No grocery stores, no restaurants, no going to a bar for a drink, not even medicines from the pharmacy.
Rob Greenfield Wants to Inspire People to Question Their Food<p>For some time, Greenfield had been wrestling with the question: is it possible to step away from our globalised industrialised food system, from all the destruction that it causes to the world, to other species, to other people, and step away from that and actually produce all of his own food? So he decided to find out if it was possible.</p><p>Well, one year later and Greenfield is happy to announce that he still here and he is healthier than when he started, and happier that he did it.</p><p>Another element of the experiment is that he wants to inspire people to question their food. Where does it come from? How does it get to them? What is the impact it has on the Earth, other species and ultimately themselves?</p><img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yMjA5MTUzMS9vcmlnaW4uanBnIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTU5NDYzMzk1MH0.i-RJfolZhxY-gTtAiecvQ4xJJzbXwpYoqZCVUs_eZSw/img.jpg?width=980" id="b4b95" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="902f9c30d0ef4b544705f9a55710fce9" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" />

For the next 30 days, I'm going to be wearing every single piece of trash that I create. At first that might sound crazy, but anybody who knows me, knows that I am indeed crazy ... crazy in a good way. My biggest goal in life is to inspire people to think about how our little daily actions affect the world around us both near and far.
