Focus on purchasing - buying locally

If you buy products that are made locally, you reduce the amount of fuel burned in transporting those goods to your door.  It's hard to buy a washining machine that's made locally, but you can buy locally grown food.

17th September to 2nd October is British Food Fortnight when retailers encourage people to buy food grown in Britain.  It's also the York Festival of Food and Drink until 25th September, where local producers will be showing off the best of local food and drink.  If you want to know more about food and drink producers in our area, deliciouslYorkshire has some great lists of where to shop.
