Eating seasonally can have enormously positive effects on the environment.

It means you are more likely to eat locally which is wonderful for local farmers.

The means by which the produce gets to your table will be drastically better for the environment than if it is shipped or flown in.

This could also save you money as you are not forking out for transportation costs.

Another important benefit is that the produce is less likely to be genetically modified.

Eating seasonally is very good for your health too as fruits and vegetables are generally around when they are most beneficial to your body.
