  When you are concerned about the environment, it makes each holiday celebration slightly different from what you may recall from your youth. Thankfully, there is so much you can do that is not just eco-friendly but also healthy and don’t( forget) delicious. Your family and guests won’t even realize that they’re also saving the environment.
One of the most important things you can do for the environment and your health is to shop locally whenever you can. That means buying produce that was grown in your local area. Most grocery stores today do have local produce; just read the signs. If you’re not sure, ask someone. Even Walmart offers local produce in many areas.
Obviously, if you are buying locally, you’ll be buying in- season produce and food. The reason you want to buy in season is that they must use fewer outside means to help the plants to grow than otherwise. The flavor can’t be beaten, and you’re also helping your local community and the environment by doing as much as is possible where you live.
Processed food like white sugar, flour, and other ingredients aren’t usually going to be made locally (unless you have a factory there) and they may not be healthy or environmentally friendly depending on how they’re processed.
