i Can Help Mitigate Climate Change while Supporting Local Producers
Sourcing local products is better for the environment as it helps reduce GHG (from transportation) emissions.
Often, we don't know how far our food travels before it reaches our tables - and the cost to our climate of the transport required to bring it to us.
Buying local produce ensures that food has passed some of the highest safety standards in the world. Canada has very strict regulations regarding additives, pesticides, herbicides, etc.
