We receive a lot of messages about our food and where it comes from, but by staying informed and choosing environmentally friendly foods, we can help the planet, as well as our local communities. We may choose to eat kangaroo or wild goat, pig, rabbit or duck, which has been living a free-range, carbon-neutral and organic existence, rather than in confined and mechanised spaces where it becomes highly processed supermarket food. Choosing wild foods also reduces the strain on Australia’s native wildlife, allowing habitats that were threatened to once again find their balance. Or we may simply feel better about choosing foods that have been sourced from our local town or state, rather than an imported variety that is not as fresh and whose origins and ingredients may be uncertain.
