It's a great time for making healthier and more responsible choices about the foods we buy and eat.
Farmers' markets and providors are sprouting up everywhere, and even some supermarkets are responding to the demand by selling organic or local produce.
By shopping responsibly, you're letting supermarkets and food companies know what consumers want.
Here are a few ways to shop responsibly, sustainably and GE-free.
GROW YOUR OWN
Whether it's a hobby farm or backyard veggie patch, growing your own food is the best way to guarantee fresh, healthy, chemical-free food.
It's also a fun, rewarding and environmentally sound way of sourcing food, and you can get the whole family involved (especially the kids).
There's an abundance of online resources to help you along the way, and remember to make and use your own compost for quality results.
