Seasonal & Local

1 Local and Seasonal



Just sticking to one or the other doesn’t cut it anymore and here’s why; For obvious reasons, food grown abroad and flown to your plate, so to speak, has an extraordinarily large carbon footprint. However, food grown locally but out of season requires energy intensive farming practices (like artificially heated greenhouses) that leave an extraordinarily large carbon footprint as well. According to BBC News, food grown locally but out of season in artificially “heated greenhouses, heavily fertilised, harvested using fuel-heavy machinery and stored for months in fridges can be worse for the climate than produce grown abroad using the sun’s heat, picked by humans and flown to the UK”. Also, it’s necessary to note that local doesn’t just mean domestically grown. Food grown in the U.S. often travels all over the country before it reaches your ‘local’ grocery store racking up many carbon miles on the way, so get informed on where your food is coming from! Check the back of the box or bottle, ask a store employee, or Google search for farmers markets near you.
