Michael Pollan: Why Eat Local? nourish video

Choose to buy seasonal, locally grown, organic food.

  • Shop at your local farmers market or join a CSA (community supported agriculture)
  • Seek out businesses that offer local and sustainable food choices
  • Support local family farms to strengthen regional markets and access to healthy food

From field to fork, an average dinner travels 1,500 miles. But your food doesn't have to travel halfway around the planet. When you buy from local farms, your dollars stay within your community and support local farmers. When you choose organic, you are investing in healthy food and a clean environment.

Plastic can be incredibly useful in making durable items like contact lenses and electronics, but it is also used to make products used just once then thrown away, like straws, take-out utensils, and plastic cups. Plastic does not biodegrade, it photodegrades into smaller and smaller pieces and can remain in the environment indefinitely.
