Buy Local

garden produceFor the most part it’s usually better to buy local. This cuts out the emissions created as a result of shipping, getting the product to your door.
This is an important question: Is it better to buy biodegradable garbage bags that are manufactured in China? Or go with the one’s made a block away, that aren’t shipped around the world?
Keep this in mind when buying local; but for the most part, it’s best to cut out as much transportation as possible. Visit a farmer’s market nearby. Ask the vendors where they get their produce from. Another good source for finding locals is your neighborhood health-food store. Often you can find the inside scoop on where to get what.

    Jack,
    You are too general…of course we should buy local, but what does that mean? How do I know where my food products/cleaning products come from? How do I know where my bags come from?

    If this is supposed to be an Israeli site, please give us appropriate information for Israel.
