Proposal to Treat Breastfeeding as Carbon Offset

Recent studies suggest that breastfeeding should be recognized as an environmentally friendly practice and a potential carbon offset. Breastfeeding offers significant health benefits for both mothers and babies and has a minimal environmental impact compared to commercial milk formulas, which are associated with high water usage, greenhouse gas emissions, and substantial waste. Advocates propose including breastfeeding in national budgets and GDP calculations to promote female equality and sustainable development. Recognizing breastfeeding as a carbon offset could redirect funds from the commercial formula industry to support breastfeeding, benefiting the environment and public health.
