Fresher food

By Micheal, Cole Manor Healthy Comet | What I have noticed is that locally grown food is good for the environment because it is fresher. Also, if the food comes from far away, it may be almost expired by the time it gets to the store.

When you leave one light on you are wasting electricity and hurting the environment so, when you turn off a light make sure you check if you did, and you will save electricity bills, and when you take the plug out it will save more electricity bills, too.
