Follow the Footprint

96% of everything we do or consume in a given day is fossil fuel based! And that is only part of the equation. The products we use, the way we shop and our everyday activities also impact water use, land use and the amount of waste we generate. If we want to change our impact on the planet, and our consumption of fossil fuels, we have to look at doing things differently.

Join us as we take a journey to explore the footprint of everyday products and activities. Each week, we will look at “the footprint” of what it takes to get products to your door or local store along with one or two ways you could reduce that footprint. Then follow us on social media and let’s get the conversation started! In what ways have you already reduced your footprint around that item or activity? What new ideas do you have for ways to reduce, reuse or recycle common items? Help us start a positive and collaborative discussion about everyday products and activities.  If we work together we can have a cumulative effect on the planet!

We all want a healthy diet.  And buying prewashed and ready to go lettuce, spinach or arugula makes life simple.  But what is the foot print of lettuce in a box?  Fertilizers, tractors to plant, grow and harvest, trucks to get it to the factory where it has to be triple-washed, put into a plastic box and then put on another truck to get it to the store.  Want to have less of an impact?  Try walking to the farmer's market, putting it in your own bag and washing it at home.  Or, if you have the time and space, grow it yourself!  Think you don't have the space?  Check out hydro farming!
