Many of you have pledged to eat local this Thanksgiving, with approximately 116 plates worth of food coming from local sources rather than shipped in products from afar.
An estimated 255 pounds of CO2 has been saved just from these pledges alone. Just to put that in perspective, this is the equivalent of driving 313 less miles in your car.
Although that may not seem like a lot, if the 15,000 unique visitors that visited my blog in the last month replaced one plate worth of food at their Thanksgiving table with local products, that would be like taking the average vehicle off the road for 40,500 miles. I think that's a number that really makes a difference. A huge difference that just you Crunchy Chickens out there can make without much effort or extra cost.
So, even though many of you may not have pledged to do so, it's not too late to add local produce to your table.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
