Buy Local Produce and Food

Most of the produce and meats on your dinner table were shipped an average of 1500 miles before being sold in your grocery store.

That's U.S. produce -- We're not talking about New Zealand beef and Costa Rican bananas and coffee. Shop a farmer's market or find farmers and cut the emissions used to truck food around the country. Visit Local Harvest to find a local source for foods and support the economy in your area and the farmers so they aren't forced to sell their farms.

Nothing tastes better than something picked fresh and ripe.
