Fava, black, kidney, mung, cowpeas, lentils, and peas, oh my!
What do all these things have in common? They are all members of the pulse family.
But what is a pulse? Pulses are a sub-group of legumes, more commonly referred to as peas, beans and lentils.
Sure, but why is EWEB telling me about beans, aren’t you just my utility provider? While EWEB’s primary mission is to deliver quality drinking water and safe, reliable electricity to our customer owners, we also have a responsibility to be stewards of your financial and natural resources. This includes our impact and role in reducing the greenhouse gases contributing to climate change. We are already fortunate to have one of the cleanest energy portfolios in the nation and are committed to our Climate Change Policy which states that our energy portfolio will be 95% carbon-free by 2030.
That is only one thing EWEB is doing, you can learn more about what EWEB’s commitment to the environment here. And there is still more to be done, so what can you do?
By making small changes in your daily routine, such as eating more plant-based foods, especially ones that have multiple benefits to the environment, you can help reduce your household’s carbon footprint.
Adding pulses to your diet offers a world of benefits, not just for your personal health, but also for the health of the environment. Pulses have so much potential to further global sustainability that the United Nations designated February 10 as World Pulses Day.
Here are just a few of the benefits of pulses:
With all these benefits, how could you not give them a try? Here are a few recipes from around the world to use as inspiration on how you can incorporate them into your diet.
You can learn more about the many benefits of pulses at the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.
After you maximize ways to save energy and reduce carbon emissions, you can neutralize your remaining carbon footprint with carbon offsets added right to your EWEB bill.
EWEB’s Lead Green programs can help you put your money where your values are. Customer investments are used to finance projects that benefit the environment.
