Where Does Your Food Come From?
Check to see where your food comes from before you buy it. Although Michigan produces a lot
of apples, 3/4 of our apples still come from the state of Washington. All of that food travel produces
carbon and hurts the environment. The closer you can buy to your home, the better. Take a look
at where Michigan's apples come from.
