Again I am going to make a reference to a previous number; this time it is number six (again. Well, at least I'm reusing it). In the grocery store, food comes from a wide range of places. Delivering food from these places uses a lot of fuel. A lot of fossil fuel, a resource that will run out sooner or later. Places that are farther away use more fuel to deliver to your grocery store. Become a Produce Police! Check to see if it says where it came from and if you can, buy from the closest place to where you live. It makes no sense to live in California where they grow zillions of grapes and buy grapes from Chile or somewhere far away. If you can, go to a farmer's market. Local farmers' bring in their crops for you to buy at farmers' markets. Their food tastes better than in the grocery store AND is less expensive.
