I get comments like this quite often and I am never really sure what to answer. So what do you say to someone who tells you about all the bad effects on the climate that is caused by shipping fruits around the planet?
Well I do try to eat as local as possible most of the time. Especially because tropical fruits are just far too expensive and therefore just a treat for me. But what about all those bananas?
I know you can tell a person who is living on factory meat and dairy how bad this is for the environment. But a lot of people I know try to get their meat, milk and eggs from local farmers - so what would you tell them?
