Insects can be an important part of a more sustainable food system as one of the most sustainable protein sources in the world. Not just that but they’re incredibly nutritious and are actually very tasty!
 

Insects are eaten in over 80% of the countries so in many ways – you’re the weirdo!

The graph shows how little Co2 and feed is used by crickets in comparison to chickens, pigs and cows.

HEY! LEO & AARON HERE

The image shows two founders of Yum Bug - Leo and Aaron

We are huge foodies,but hated seeing the environmental destruction caused by the food system. That's why we created Yum Bug and #YumBugChallenge.

 

We want to raise awareness about the impact of the food industry on the environment, and encourage people to try more sustainable sources of protein, like insects, while having some fun along the way!

 

Go on, eat a bug for the planet!
