The population is growing, our resources are diminishing and the climate is changing. If consumer behavior does not change by 2030, the entire environmental system is in danger of collapsing. Today, meat consumption is reaching its limits. We are facing a global food crisis. An alternative protein source and possible solution to reduce animal agriculture and disproportionate management of plant food products, could be the consumption of insects. They not only ensure a diet rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 acids, but also help conserve land use and resources. And this thanks to their ability to metamorphose within a life cycle and their natural reproduction in a very small space. Think it’s crazy? Then check out the overviews below:

Insects can seem insignificant or even disgusting, but they are actually underestimated. Without insects, life on earth would not be possible. They are one of the most important living creatures for our ecosystems. If we respect these animals and integrate them into our lives, they can not only help us solve the world food problem, but also other future challenges.

Insects decompose not only organic matter, but also Styrofoam, cork and various types of plastic, turning them into useful compost.

Only 10% of all insects are parasites. All other insects are predators. If we maintain a natural balance of predators and parasites, there is good potential for biological control of various plant pests.

90% of all plant species on earth depend on pollinators.
98% of all pollinators are insects. Only with insects, we can balance the natural equilibrium on earth and sustain life.

“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” – E. O. Wilson
