(Washington, D.C. – July 14, 2008) Ever wanted to tell EPA what you thought on an environmental topic? Each week, you have your chance in the EPA blog, "Greenversations." Each question is an open-ended blog entry; please share your thoughts as comments.

This week's question:

Do you pay attention to where your food comes from?
Much of the food we buy is grown in other places and transported to markets or restaurants where we live. Some people have tried to be "locavores," consuming only locally-grown food or products, in an effort to reduce the environmental impacts from transportation, cold storage, or others.

¿Usted presta atención al lugar de donde provienen sus alimentos?
Gran parte de los alimentos que compramos son cultivados en otros lugares y transportados a mercados o restaurantes cerca de donde vivimos. Algunas personas han tratado de ser "locávoros" o "locávores" al tratar de consumir sólo aquellos alimentos o productos que han sido cultivados localmente en un esfuerzo por reducir los impactos medioambientales de la transportación, el almacenaje frigorífico, u otros.
