Sustainable September is a great opportunity to promote the benefits - both for health and the planet - of a sustainable diet and highlight the small steps we can all make to do our bit. 

This year we’re excited to introduce ‘Small steps to eating more sustainably’ in partnership with our corporate members Oatly who will be providing prizes throughout the month.

Join us in sharing our resources, using #BDASustainableSeptember and let us know what you are doing to embed environmental sustainability in your practice.

We are really excited to be supporting BDA’s Sustainable September Campaign with this activity. For over 25 years, we have exclusively focused on developing expertise around oats: a global power crop with inherent properties suited for sustainability and human health. We aim to help drive a systemic shift in society to a more plant-based food system to tackle climate change and public health challenges.
