Six Reasons to Eat a Local, Sustainable Diet

Six reasons to eat a local, sustainable diet

 

  1. Local, sustainable foods taste better because their shorter travel to your table means they can be harvested at their peak ripeness and flavor.
  2. Sustainable produce is grown with fewer pesticides—so fewer toxic chemicals in your food and in your environment.
  3. Sustainable meat is raised with no hormones and no unnecessary antibiotics.
  4. Sustainable foods are not genetically engineered, which studies have shown can be detrimental to our bodies and our environment.
  5. Sustainable farming supports the local economy, keeping dollars spent here in your own community.
  6. Sustainable farming produces less waste from crops and production than conventional farming practices.
