Buying locally grown organic produce is not just a great way to eat healthy, but it’s also an awesome way to help keep our planet clean!
Buying local food promotes energy conservation and reduces emissions. The average distance our food travels is 1500 miles, mostly by air and truck, increasing our dependence on petroleum. By buying locally, you not only conserve the energy that’s used for transport, but you help reduce a huge amount of emissions caused by this transport.
Local food BTW also means more fresh and nutritious. Local food supports the environment and benefits wildlife. Family farmers tend to be good stewards of the land – they respect and value fertile soil and clean water. And their farms provide the fields, meadows, forests, ponds and buildings that are the habitat for many beloved and important species of wildlife. In addition, organic farmers reduce a great amount of unnecessary pollution caused by chemical fertilizers and pesticides that end up in our lakes and rivers.
So do your part and buy local! When you go green with Harvest 2U, we put green ($) back in your pocket.
