Green Tip of Day- Buy Local
It's a no-brainer that locally grown food has spent less time in transit and storage, where flavor and nutrition start to fade. Did you know that air-freighted food can make the CO2 emissions from your shopping cart exceed that of your car and home combined?
The best transport is from your garden to your door, but if that's not an option buying from the farmer is the next best. Farmers Markets and Food Co-ops like the Purple Porch.
As you know it's not just the food stores you should frequent...by shopping local you support the small businesses in your area. They are the quaint shops like ours that keep the money in our area.
