Daily Tip: Jan 7, 2008

Think globally, eat locally. Food that's grown and produced nearby reduces transportation-related emissions and can also be safer because you know the source. If you have them nearby, farmers' markets and farms' U-pick or roadside stands are great places to shop. And some grocery chains like Whole Foods try to stock regional food. (Their qualifier: the food has to travel seven hours or fewer from the farm to be considered local.) But you can look at the label in any grocery store. The sticker will often tell a fruit or vegetable's origin.
