Our supermarkets and shops are filled with goods from all around the world, which is one of the perks of a globalised society but it is also the cause of a lot of pollution. Transport accounts for 26% of carbon emissions in the UK and, while technologies advance to reduce this, we can help by buying our produce locally if and when it is available. Head to your local greengrocer, butcher, fishmonger and cheesemonger to get the most fresh and local supplies for your fridge and kitchen cupboards. Eat seasonal produce to reduce your reliance on imported food. Support local high street shops and get your clothes, furniture, crockery made and sold in your neighbourhood.
