I'm going to get right to the point. Buying locally produced food provides environmental benefits. Most foods being shipped, usually take hundreds or even thousands of miles to get to supermarkets. Transporting food is actually one of the biggest cause of the increase in greenhouse gas emission and switching to locally grown produce, you can cut the food miles that you consume.

The distance that food has traveled overseas, on a boat, in a truck or any vehicle is called “food miles.” The more food miles racked up during food transportation, the more fossil fuels that are being burned.  Reducing food miles helps lessen our dependence on fossil fuels. It reduces air pollution and cut back on greenhouse gas emissions.

One small change can have a large impact on the environment. If everyone chose to purchase locally grown food instead of imported food, there would be a significant drop in greenhouse gasses emitted and overall oil consumption due to food transportation. This is why we should switch to eating locally. The impact of transport is important.

Help sign this petition and share with others. By signing this petition you pledge to buy locally produced food.

Together we can help save our planet.
