A trip to the grocery store can affect climate change in a number of ways. Frequent considerations may include excessive packaging of many products, whether to buy organic, how far the food has traveled, and even what kind of food you buy. These considerations all affect your carbon footprint. When trying to determine which items offer a low-carbon diet, consider simple solutions like less packaging, purchasing unprocessed foods, and visiting your local farmer's market to get food that hasn't traveled far while also supporting your community. Just like in other areas of your life, small changes in your purchases can make a big difference.
