What you put on your dinner plate can have a huge impact on the environment. When you purchase food that isn’t locally grown, or manufactured, it has to travel thousands of kilometres to reach your neighbourhood grocery store. This long-distance travel results in the unnecessary burning of fuels to get these products on supermarket shelves. You can use Earth Day thinking to purchase in-season and organic food from local producers instead. Not only will the food that you’re eating be fresher, tastier and more nutritious, but it will also spare the environment from extra pollution.
