Eating Healthy vs. The Environment
Most people want to eat healthy. Some people include organic fruits and vegetables as part of their diet to achieve that. What about the carbon footprint of that food? If you live in a norther climate it is pretty tough to find produce in January. Does getting your fresh, organic spinach shipped in from California or Mexico negate the positive aspect of it being organic? Do you trade your health for the environment? In my opinion, this is one of the toughest aspects of environmentalism for consumers. What do you think and what choices do you make?
