Storyboard Text

  • Peru's growing conditions allow avocado trees to be planted.  Farmers have started cutting back on other plantations to have more avocado trees.
  • Avocados grow on tropical evergreen trees that can grow up to 40-80 feet tall. 
  • Avocados require twice the amount of water as growing a similar weight of oranges. The environmental impacts from avocados come from the energy, water and fertilizer to grow them. 
  • After being picked out, avocados are then put into boxes which are made out of paper which comes from trees. 
  • The boxes travels on a truck that burns fossil fuels. The long distance which the truck has to travel contributes to air pollution because of the gases. 
  • As a nation, Canada is one of the largest avocado consumers in the world. The carbon footprint of an avocado can dependquite a lot on how it was grown and how far it has been transported.
  • The resources used for packaging materials and the energy used in processing, transporting and keeping them cool to preserve their freshness,  are not good for the environment.
  • Avocados finally reaches the store, then people buys it. They then use a transport  to take it to their house, which burns more fossil fuels and creates more air pollution. 
  • Buy less avocados!
  • Even though avocados are good for our health, they are not very good for the environment. 
  • We only consume it once. After it goes bad it goes to waste.
