Sorry Strawberry’s aren’t a year around fruit


People are used to going to the grocery store, and purchasing strawberry’s in December and not thinking anything of it. Unfortunately fruits like this don’t grow well in Oregon during the winter months. In order for people to live more sustainable, we are going to need to realize that buying those mango’s in the winter month’s isn’t sustainable. It’s not sustainable due to the fact that it has to be shipped halfway across the world to get here. This shipping process produces tons of green house gases not to mention the chemicals they have to use to keep the fruit from rotting. We need to realize we can’t go through life eating these fruits when they’re not in season. In the earlier days of our history people would get their fruit in the winter months by canning, when it is in season. This way during the winter they can still enjoy their fruit. By doing this we could cut tons of green house gases from being produced. So next time you are at the store think twice about what you are purchasing.
