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!

The miles clocked up when food we cannot grow in the U.K. or is out of season, travels a long to get to
How food miles can be a good thing!
