It's Earth Lunch Hour today

Today - October 6th is Earth Lunch Hour day.

We're encouraged to look at our usual lunchtime eating habits and try to make them 'greener'.

This could involve sourcing the food more locally (no we don't mean choosing a nearer pie shop), choosing food with less packaging or just choosing foods in season (which hopefully means they'll have travelled less to the supermarket).

I joked about the nearest pie shop but why should green lunches stop at what you're actually eating? If your lunchtime habit is to travel out, then why not try a nearer venue or try walking instead of driving?
