Eat local food

Have you ever considered how much oil is being used to get that banana to you? Oil containing fuel is used in food transportation and many food items travel more than 2,000 kilometers (km) before they reach your dinner table. Currently, the average meal travels 1200km from the farm to your plate. Food that is grown closer to home creates fewer transportation emissions, is fresher, and supports local farmers. Additionally, as the distance food travels decreases, so does the need for processing and refrigeration to reduce spoilage. You can slice off 40kg per year your Greenhouse Gas emissions for each person in your household by buying in-season, locally produced food. Buying local means that foods don't have to be transported as far so trucks don't have to refrigerate food as long reducing the amount of oil required.
