If I buy a local apple at my farmers’ market that isn’t certified organic, it could be sprayed with chemicals, GMO, what-have-you. So organic’s certainly safer. Still, buying an organic apple that’s been shipped from New Zealand makes me responsible for a helluvalotta food miles, and resultant pollution.
So I ask you: what’s better, Local or Organic? Can we work out some sort of eco rating that combines the two, and whatever other factors are relevant?
