Now here's a great idea....
Diet for a sustainable planet
The challenge: Eat locally for a month (You can start practising now)
I'm going to try this. Eating only food from the Nelson/Marlborough region for a month (as an initial goal). It will be difficult and there will be a few exceptions (coffee for example), but I think its a great way to prepare for a sustainable future. I don't expect it will any more (or less) expensive, but it will probably mean shopping in different places. I will make a point of getting my vegetable direct from the grower, at the Nelson market (Saturday mornings in town). That way I can at least confirm how far they have travelled, as opposed to the supermarket where I can't tell where (or how) the food was grown. It will also mean researching the products I buy. For example I currently have no idea which of the 3 or 4 brands of milk I can buy is produced locally. I'll need to find out.
This should broaden my dietary horizons too :)
