Buying local, organic food reduces your carbon footprint

It burns less carbon to transport food from a local farm/market to your table than it does from overseas. If you live on the coast, choose a local, wild fish. If you are inland, try hormone-free, free range or organic beef and poultry. Even buying dishes that use local ingredients (say, local vegetables, or Wisconsin cheese when you're in Wisconsin) can create change.
