Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
The food on supermarket shelves requires lots of energy to produce. Most of this energy comes from burning fossil fuels such as oil and coal. Unfortunately, supplies of these fuels will eventually run out. Using them the way we do today, moreover, pollutes the air. One important way that people can preserve these resources and reduce pollution is by eating green. This means buying foods that were produced and shipped in ways that use the least amount of fossil fuels. Buying fruits and vegetables at farmers markets is a good start to eating green. Look inside to discover other steps people are taking to "eat green" as a way of conserving Earth's resources and helping protect the planet. Book jacket.
