ED2ED Day Eight: Buy Local Produce
Buying your produce at your local farmer's market is a great way to go green because 1) it diminishes the eco-perils associated with long-distance transportation; 2) local growers use fewer pesticides and practice sustainable farming methods; and 3) local grown food generally involves far less packaging. And if you live in the Midlands, you're in luck: today is the last day of the Midlands Plant and Flower Festival, 12 to 5 p.m. at the State Farmers Market on Bluff Road.
