Gallery: How To Get Healthy and Lose Weight by Going Green!

 

Buy local, in-season groceries and carry them home



Seek out markets in your area that represents local farms and stock up on in-season fruits and veggies. Buying local food saves on the fuel needed to transport goods from afar, but it also means you are getting fruits and veggies not coated in waxes or ripening chemicals. Choosing produce that is in season is a good alternative to the energy used for greenhouse raised or imported foods. It will also help you get a workout if you vow to buy only what you can carry safely (don't hurt your back) in reusable bags home from the market.
