Local food is a global issue.
We literally eat oil! First the ground is tilled and planted with a
diesel tractor, then fertilizers and pesticides are applied, both of
which are petroleum derivatives. Then the crop is harvested and brought
to market with diesel fuelwith the average food item on our plate
traveling an astounding 1500 miles to get there. After all that,
most consumers will drive their car to the supermarket or restaurant
to purchase it. By making a point of eating homegrown, local food,
purchasing local produce, and focusing on local organic, we can greatly
reduce our carbon footprint as it pertains to food.
This sticker is a great way
to show your support for the local food movement, the importance of
local produce, and the big picture about how local organic relates to
global oil consumption.
Local food (also
regional food or food patriotism) or the local food movement
is a collaborative effort to build more locally based, self-reliant
food economies – one in which sustainable food production, processing,
distribution, and consumption is integrated to enhance the economic,
environmental and social health of a particular place, and is considered
to be a part of the broader sustainability movement. (Wikipedia)
Support local food, and get
rid of that nasty petroleum aftertaste!
Local food also means food
that tastes better, is more nutritious, and helps to preserve agricultural
diversity through the cultivation of heirloom varietals.
