Health

Insects are healthy, nutritious alternatives to mainstream staples such as chicken, pork, beef and even fish.

Many insects are rich in protein and good fats and high in calcium, iron and zinc.

Insects already form a traditional part of many regional and national diets.

Environmental

Insects promoted as food emit considerably fewer greenhouse gases (GHGs) than most livestock (methane, for instance, is produced by only a few insect groups, such as termites and cockroaches).

Insect rearing is not necessarily a land-based activity and does not require land clearing to expand production. Feed is the major requirement for land.

The ammonia emissions associated with insect rearing are also far lower than those linked to conventional livestock, such as pigs.

Because they are cold-blooded, insects are very efficient at converting feed into protein (crickets, for example, need 12 times less feed than cattle, four times less feed than sheep, and half as much feed as pigs and broiler chickens to produce the same amount of protein).

Insects can be fed on organic waste streams.

Livelihoods

Insect harvesting/rearing is a low-tech, low-capital investment option that offers entry even to the poorest sections of society.

Mini livestock offer livelihood opportunities for both urban and rural people.

Insect rearing can be low-tech or very sophisticated, depending on the level of investment.

How this gift helps

The Eden Project is an educational charity and social enterprise and when you buy anything from our shop, you're supporting our work and educational programmes.

As well as offering our visitors to Eden a memorable, educational day out, we also use our expertise to work with local organisations across the world.

In Thailand, we have been working with local organisation FORRU on reforestation projects to restore large areas of degraded tropical forest. Over 65,000 trees have been planted and community training and learning has been shared across the country building up a network of local knowledge on how to protect rainforests and conserve natural resources..
