If you like the idea of moving towards living a more sustainable lifestyle, one of the best ways to do so is to consider what you eat. Choosing local produce, grown using sustainable methods and supporting your local economy are good reasons to opt for seasonal foods. Here, we have a list of seasonal fruit and vegetables to look out for this autumn.
As a general rule, if the produce you’re consuming is out of season (i.e. won’t grow at this time of year in Britain under normal conditions), it’s either been flown in from abroad (leaving a huge carbon footprint) or ‘forced on’ using modern farming methods.
