Eating to save the environment.

The biggest step you can take towards helping the environment is starting on a local level.

By growing your own foods, by influencing big businesses through your purchase behaviours. By buying local.

Shop with local businesses. Start Buying from places that promote regenerative agriculture, land regrowth and paddock to plate farms that cut out the middle men and transportation costs.

Start with your local farmers markets and buy local.
