How Can You Make Sustainable Choices?

Consumer demand is a driving force behind the policies that will affect the way our land is cultivated and the quality of food that finds its way to our tables. Whether you're shopping for groceries or going out eat, making sustainable choices is more important than ever. Thanks to Sustainable Table, the folks who brought us The Meatrix trilogy, it's also easier than ever.

Two weeks ago, I introduced the general concept of sustainable farming. If you found yourself wondering how those of us who don't farm can make a difference, Sustainable Table has created 'Three Easy Steps to Sustainability,' a guide designed to help you make appropriate choices as a consumer.

And when you're ready to learn more, visit their Web site for all kinds of useful tools such as shopping guides, informational booklets and directories. Good luck in your quest for healthier, eco-friendlier foods!
