4 Common Foods That Are Causing Harm to Our Environment

October 12, 2015 2 min read

The constant changes our society sees in regards to our food is pretty shocking. But did you know we not only have to be careful of the types of foods we put in our bodies for our health, but also for the environment around us? Here are 4 environmentally unfriendly foods that commonly make their way into your diet. 1. Beef These foods are bad for the environment. While many think of beef as being a big source of protein, what you ought to know is the dangers of it as well. The cows we consume need 28 times more land and 11 times more water than pork, eggs, or dairy. Also of concern is that the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences released a report saying that cows cause one-fifth of overall global greenhouse emissions, and are the cause of widespread pollution due to "nutritional overabundance" (their manure gets everywhere). 2.  Bluefin Tuna These foods are bad for the environment. According to National Geographic, these fish "have been so over-fished that they can't reproduce fast enough to replace what's caught." Longlining is the fishing method commonly used to catch them. But they often come up with endangered animals such as sea turtles, sharks, and seabirds. 3. Rice These foods are bad for the environment. It seems like one of the simplest food sources out there, but the truth is that an estimated 11% of man-made methane emissions come from its cultivation. Rice also uses a third of our planet's fresh water. 4. High-Fructose Corn Syrup These foods are bad for the environment. Because high-fructose corn syrup is so popular and so cheap, a lot of farms in the US grow it as a monoculture, "depleting soil nutrients, requiring more pesticides and fertilizer while weakening topsoil." Were you aware that any of these caused such issues? Source: Diply

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
