Organic World with Jerry Kay: September 11th, 2006
Theresa Marquez, CMO of Organic Valley and founder of EarthDinner.org, explores the importance of knowing the story of the foods you eat. John Abrahall, of Bullfrogfilms, discusses the relevancy of hard-hitting documentary films. Rich Pirog, from Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, discusses how far food travels to reach us. For instance, table grapes travel an average of 2100 miles to reach you. Food has generally been traveling further and by less efficient means over the years. Peter D. Krahenbuhl, co-founder of Sustainable Travel International, talks about how we can repair the carbon footprints we leave.
