The 100 Mile Rule

How about a fun fact? Over half the paper consumed in this country is used for packaging.

Anyway, I am a vegatarian and organic wannabe. I read their columns, and try to stay true to their ways...There is something about chicken parm, however.

There is a frequently mentioned tenet called the 100 mile rule. Everything you buy should be produced 100 miles from your home or less.

Think about seriously for a moment. If we did this as a rule, the amount of transportation, gas, warehouses, energy, etc that would be saved would be tremendous.

A side benefit would be healthier ingredients and a better lifestyle
