The programme discusses the rise of 'climatarians,' individuals who adopt dietary habits aimed at reducing their environmental impact. It explores how climatarians prioritize food choices that have lower carbon footprints, such as plant-based diets and locally sourced produce. The segment examines the motivations behind this lifestyle shift, including concerns about climate change and sustainability. Additionally, it highlights the challenges climatarians face in maintaining their dietary choices, particularly in the face of societal norms and convenience.
