Storyboard Text

  • One dollar spent locally generates twice as much income for the local economy.
  • Fair enough, however it also hurts the farmers from other parts of the world.
  • during a study by the journal Food Policy, it was found that the miles that organic food travels to our plate creates environmental damage
  • Actually, to take an extreme example, a shipper sending a truck with 2,000 apples 2,000 miles would consume the same amount of fuel per apple as a local farmer who takes a pickup 50 miles to sell 50 apples at his stall.
