One small step for man: help reduce your carbon footprint

2007-06-27 17:34:33 - We are all being urged to keep an eye on our carbon footprint to reduce the impact on climate change and natural resources and to eat 5-a-day to reduce the strain on our bodies (and the NHS) by looking after our health.

The reality is that ‘saying' is often easier than ‘doing', however has just launched two new aids on their website to help ordinary people easily achieve both targets in one hit.

In tandem, the ‘What's in Season' and ‘Smoothies' sections provide all the information needed to enable people to not only eat locally grown seasonal produce, which have a lighter carbon footprint than fruit and vegetables which are imported, but also offers a simple, quick and delicious way to get the NHS recommended ‘5-a-day'.

The ‘What's in season' section is divided into months of the year and also features an interactive map of all the counties in England, Wales and Scotland (N. Ireland coming soon) which shows hundreds of Farmers' Markets throughout the UK, taking the hassle out of sourcing fresh locally grown produce, no matter where the reader is from. To round things off, each month has sample recipes using produce in season.

The ‘Smoothies' section not only has the usual fruit smoothie recipes, but also sections containing vegetable and adult smoothies, plus the most comprehensive instructions you'll find on the net detailing how to make the perfect smoothie.

To make things even more simple, all the smoothie recipes state how many of your '5-a-day' each portion contains, so if used it in conjunction with the 'What's in Season' section, readers can easily do their bit to lessen their carbon footprint and eat, or should we say drink healthily at the same time.

Note to Editors was launched in 2000 and is an independent and privately owned UK recipe and food information site covering many aspects of food,  from growing to cooking.   We therefore have no allegiance to particular food suppliers or retailers.
