Eating local products

Favouring local products, or the so-called “zero-kilometre products” is a good solution to avoid long trips of animals and food coming from the other side of the world. This solution, at the same time, allows to emit in the atmosphere, indirectly, less amounts of greenhouse gases. You can also address farmsteads of your area to buy meat, cold cuts, cheese and other dairy products. You can also collect fresh milk from raw milk distributors spread in farmsteads and also in our cities and remember to bring your own empty bottle to fill it! In this way, besides preventing greenhouse gas emissons you will prevent squandering packaging and you will also save money as, avoiding the production chain phases, milk costs less!
