We’re all very proud of Danielle, our director here at CHAI Cooking – she doesn’t much like to talk about herself or her achievements so we’re going to do it for her!
When most of us see underdeveloped communities in Africa deprived of water, we give to charities and hope someone else sorts it all out. Danielle saw what was happening and decided to try to do something about the root causes. She studied Green Crime at Hull University, winning an award for her dissertation on the impact that the industrialised process of eating animals has on climate change. She’d realised that meat production doesn’t just cause environmental problems, resulting in famine and droughts in the poorest areas of the world – it also takes a hell of a lot of food and water to raise cattle instead of us directly eating plants!
