FOOD FACTS

Things you don't know about what you eat.

Travelling food

Foods in the UK now travel 50% further than 15 years ago. This is responsible for 33% of road transport increased in the last 15 years. Road transport is the only source of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide) that is still growing. This is why carbon footprint is Increasing, and there is no way to reverse It, because it's a food transportation we can not avoid.



VEGETABLES

IF WE COMPARE VEGETABLES FROM TWO DIFFERENT PARTS, WE CAN REALIZE THAT..

Depending on where we buy, we can find vegetables that:


  • Have been sprayed with chemicals to prevent discoloration and others that have been cleaned by being washed in the field, and have never been sprayed with chemicals.
  • Also others travel 4 or 6 miles by air and road to reach the place of sale, which have been taken out for 5 days and packed in plastic bags, how we could also find some that have been released the day before, packed in bags organic paper and have traveled a couple of miles on the car in order to sell them.

With this we want you to realize that depending where you buy your food, you can find some food that could harm your health.
