So what are the advantages of having your fresh local produce delivered?
Well, apart from supporting your local farmers, here are just some of the benefits, both personally and environmentally:
Reduces impulse buys
Yes, that ruiner of budgets can easily raise it’s ugly head while you’re roaming the aisles of your local supermarket. Major supermarket chains spend small fortunes on marketing that take advantage of your (or your kid’s) desires, usually leaving you with something you don’t need and a healthy dose of buyer’s remorse. Rather buy exactly what you need, in the quantities you need, and as fresh as possible, all from the comfort of your own home.
Less carbon emission
Not as obvious a benefit, but important nonetheless. Getting your fresh produce delivered direct from local farmers cuts out most of the transport (and packaging) emissions generated in getting the produce to your local supermarket. And that’s not to mention what’s involved in getting you to the supermarket.
Packed fresh from the farm
Nothing beats fresh organic produce direct from the farm. It’s healthier, tastier and so much better for the environment.
Remember, even the small things you do to protect the environment make a huge difference in the long run. So take a load off and get it delivered!
