I hear it over and over again, people talking about how they’d eat locally and organic if it wasn’t so expensive. Eating organic doesn’t mean blowing the budget. We’ve found a great guide to help you eat green without spending all of your cash.
New Greener Family has put together a great guide to eating inexpensively in a sustainable way:
As the cost of food continues to rise, many people find themselves needing to choose more carefully what they will buy. Buying organic foods is often the choice that we want to make, yet the higher costs make it seem impossible. However, with a willingness to make a few simple changes anyone on a tight budget can enjoy organic foods in their kitchen.
If you want to find organic foods at lower costs, the first step is to stop shopping at your local grocery stores. Many of the foods found grocery stores, even in the organic sections, have been imported from around the world. This is how they can offer fruits and vegetables out of season all year long. The cost of shipping and transporting adds to the cost that customers must pay. Instead, look for local producers who will more likely have a lower price.
