Did you know that artificial feeding leaves a major environmental footprint that contributes to the depletion of natural resources, environmental degradation and greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming and climate change?
This year’s World Breastfeeding Week (#WBW2020) campaign is focused on the impact of infant feeding on the environment/climate change and the imperative to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding for the health of the planet and its people.
The objectives of #WBW2020 are:
- Inform people about the links between breastfeeding and the environment/climate change
- Anchor breastfeeding as a climate-smart decision
- Engage with individuals and organizations for greater impact
- Galvanize action on improving the health of the planet and people through breastfeeding
