2.- Transportation of food is responsible for 33% of the increase in road freight over 15 years

Problems with the pollution in the UK, increased by the transport of food.
The first is in the supermarket, and it's a packet of beans. It comes from Kenya and has travelled 4,333 miles to get to UK. The beans were picked five days ago and were sprayed with chemicals to stop them going brown on the journey. They've been packed in plastic and have travelled by road and air and road.
The second is in the farmers' market which is on Midsummer Common on Sundays. Here you have a paper bag with organic carrots in it that have travelled six miles from the farm where they were picked the day before the market. They have been cleaned by being washed in the field, and they have never been sprayed with any chemicals.
