Go Green – Go Local!

September 29, 2008

We are seeing how going green and “buying local” can have unexpected benefits to our health and certainly take a lot of stress off our minds.   And in spite of growing emphasis on the “Global Marketplace,” current news events make greenifying a more obvious choice for the health and environmentally conscious.

The case in point is the mountain concern surrounding milk products in China where at least four children have died and tens of thousands have been sickened by cow’s milk tainted with melamine and possibly other toxins that got into the milk and other products made using it.

More than a dozen countries have now banned or recalled Chinese dairy products and the European Union has barred Chinese baby food items made with even trace amounts of dairy from the Asian giant. Even now, the tainting “scare” is now spreading to various popular candies and other items.

Consuming more local foods can help us contain our concerns about countries with less government supervision of their products.  Last year, there were similar concerns among children’s toys and other products as well as contaminated pet foods imported from foreign countries that sickened animals and put children at risk.  

Many times when we go to the grocery store, we are offered a choice for regional “farmers market” or organic products which can be more expensive; or a cheaper imported product produced in a foreign country where quality assurance cannot be easily ascertained.

When we buy local, we help local economies, encourage farmers and agribusiness within our own borders, are assured of governmental oversight and safety standards of any such products, and of course go great by shrinking our “carbon footprint” with greatly reduced shipping costs.

And in this case, we might prevent illness that will require years of recovery.
