One Small Thing: Meet the People Behind Your Food

One_small_thing_logoThe amount of atmospheric carbon has skyrocketed. And world leaders are balking at doing anything about it. What can one person do? Not much -- unless a lot of people take part.

That's why once a week until Earth Day 2012, we'll post one small thing you can do to lessen your carbon footprint. Indicate that you're on board by liking and sharing the small thing. The goal is to get enough people participating that one small thing will turn into be a very big deal. Check out the previous small things here. This week's thing is:

#10. Meet Your Food.

Think about what you had for breakfast today. Do you personally know the people who supplied the food that made up your meal? Probably not. Almost all Americans never meet the people who put their food together. Try changing that by putting a face on your food. Find your local farmers' market. Most vendors are local and hospitable. Visit and meet some vendors. Get to know some of them and ask about their farming practices.
