Why should we try and be sustainable?
Our planet is in jeopardy because of the
way we grow and catch our food

Making informed decisions about our food
can benefit our planet and our health

Some food has a long trail from source to plate
building up air miles and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
-the shorter the trail, the better

Growing our own food is easy and fun!
What is a Food Mile?
The miles clocked up when food we cannot grow in the U.K. or is out of season, travels a long to get to
our homes
