Reasoned consumption

Food Consumption
In order to improve sustainability in our every day lives, we should aim to buy foods which are in season to reduce fuel consumption by the vehicles used to transport nonseasonal foods to areas of the world where they are in high demand. Using pesticides and other chemicals in the growing process is also harmful to the biodiversity in the surrounding environment, so we should aim to grow seasonal foods naturally without the intervention of chemicals. Consumer awareness must be raised around the unhealthiness of growing and eating foods which are out of season, so the demand for these goods will fall. This reduced demand will also help to combat food waste problems created through large scale production of these nonseasonal goods.
