Did You Know?

On average, a piece of produce in the U.S. travels 1,500 miles before being sold.

What Does This Mean?

We as consumers hold a lot of power. We have the power to use our dollars to make our purchases as green as possible. Companies ship us individual items wrapped in layers of packaging, adding excess waste to the already great airborne cost of large-scale transit. When possible, spend your money locally to avoid the environmental costs of national and global shipping.

What Can You Do Right Now?


  • Eat seasonally.
    • Find out what produce is in season during different times of the year such as apples in the fall, strawberries in the spring. (Bonus: this produce usually tastes a bit better too.)
  • Locally made items are always a best choice. Find out what’s produced in your community! A great way to see what’s available in your community is to visit a local farmers market if you have one.
