Using less fuel
March 20, 2023

By Antonio, Cole Manor Health Comet | I learned that locally grown food doesn’t use as much fuel because trucks do not need to transfer it very far, and that locally grown food is fresher because it is closer and it takes less time to get to the grocery store. I should start to eat fresher food and eat products that are local, and I should start to drink tap water more often.
