Today we learned about the true cost of food. Most food that you by at big box stores have a huge eco foot print (an eco foot print is the impact that we have on the earth). In this lesson we learned that you should buy locally or organically, to reduce pesticides, transportation and global warming from the methane produced by cow droppings. Only a small portion of the earth is available for growing plants and other things that we eat. I thought it was very interesting that a common family meal travels about 2000 km. The lesson I learned today was that you shoud always try to buy locally to reduce your eco foot print. Sincerely Finnian Mcintosh
