The secrets of eco-friendly eating
Buying food from the grocery store instead of a local farm stand or farmer’s market is a choice you probably don’t even think about making. If you do think about where to purchase your food at all, the decision probably comes down to convenience and price more than anything else. However, where and how you purchase your food can have widespread consequences. The choices we make in our eating habits—what we consume, where we buy it, how it is grown—can have a great environmental impact that extends far beyond our local community.
