Eat Seasonably and Sustainably

Part of eating sustainably is eating seasonably.  Even though you can buy your favorite produce year round, it does not mean it is the most sustainable choice.  Shipping foods thousands of miles racks up the carbon emissions associated with what you eat.  More energy, water, and resources are typically needed to grow fruits and vegetables that are not naturally occurring in your region.  It is better to eat locally grown, in season foods so that you give back financially to your community plus you can enjoy fresh, unprocessed produce.
