Why shall we eat food produced locally / nearby?

The nearer the food produced, the less fuel is required to transport them. That reduces air pollution and makes our atmosphere cleaner.

Food grown nearby is fresher, healthier, and full of flavours. By travelling shorter distance, this food retains more nutrients inside.

Eating food grown nearby is eating seasonally, capturing the best time of the year for that food.

 

What can I do?

When you buy, look on the labels to see how far your food travelled and choose food produced as near as possible.

Avoid buying produce that has been flown in from abroad, because the global warming pollution produced by air transport is substantially higher than others.

 

How far your food travels has serious consequences for your health and the climate. Let’s buy yourself better health and cleaner air!
