The transporting of food has harmful effects on the environment. From the farms to our plates, the typical U.S. meal travels 1,250 miles (2,000 km). This obviously is not healthy for our environment since it requires more packaging and energy to transport the food. The best thing to do is to buy produce that is in season and from your local region. Support your local farmer’s markets- this way you are not contributing to the enormous waste of energy that goes into transport-costs. You are also helping your local farmers to promote sustainable agriculture.
