 City Agency:Environmental Sustainability
 Event Type:Local Food
 Details:

The biggest thing we can do to make an environmental impact with our eating habits is to eat more minimally processed, plant-based meal. That's because processing and production accounts for 83 percent of the greenhouse gasses emitted as a result of food. We can reduce this number by eating in-season (less refrigeration required) and seeking foods that use less water and energy (in other words, less meat and dairy) before they're ready to be consumed. Another 11 percent of our food's greenhouse gasses come from transportation. One way to decrease your food's footprint from both of these sources is to become a locovore and shop at one of the eleven Colorado Springs farmer's markets. These days, most food travels 1,500 miles before getting to our tables while the food at a farmer's market travels just 60 miles. (Note: Buyer beware... not all farmers market sell exclusively local goods. Ask questions or you may end up with produce off the same truck that just delivered to your local grocery store.) And, don't forget to shop organic -it's better for the environment because organic production reduces pollutants it our streams and soil.

Our community has a rich agriculture history and we're fortunate to be located within 30 miles of the Arkansas Valley, one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the state. Buying food raised and grown in our region also has the significant benefits of supporting a more local economy and bringing fresh, delicious food to your table!
