Back Food Miles
Our food can come from all over the world. The total distance the food or its ingredients have travelled are called food miles.

Ways you can help lower your food miles and the pollution produced by the: ships, lorries and planes which transport the food include:
  • eat foods produced locally, near where you live;
  • grow your vegetables in your garden;
  • eat foods that are in season, such as strawberries in the Summer.
