Buy Food Ethically, Unless It’s Too Hard


(upbeat instrumental music) – I care about the environment. – About hunger. – About food. – One third of all food
produced worldwide is wasted. – And we needlessly pollute
by shipping perishables all over the world. – That’s why I believe in buying seasonal, local, whole foods. – Unless it’s inconvenient. – I always buy produce from
my local farmer’s market. Unless it’s raining. – Or if it’s too hot outside. Or too cold. – Or if I wake up too late. Or if I have something
else going on that day. – But otherwise yeah,
totally, farmer’s market. Because the food we buy affects all of us. – All of us. – When I support local farmers, I support my own community. – I support a cleaner
environment for everyone. – So when I do get to the farmer’s market, I’m making a difference. Except I don’t buy onions there because they’re like five
dollars for a single onion. – I could buy a whole bag of onions at the grocery store for that. – And meat. – Right, I don’t get meat there. Or milk. – I mean it looks great. – It looks delicious. – But I’m not made of money and I’m not sure I’d be able
to taste the difference. – But I definitely buy carrots and shit. – Carrots and shit. – Sometimes. Unless the produce looks kinda shitty. Sometimes it looks like shitty. – Or it’s a vegetable
I’ve never seen before and I’m scared of it. What is this thing and how do I cook it? – But I’ll still buy margarita
mix from that one stand. – Or artsinal soap. – Or tacos from the taco
truck that sits idling next to the market all day. That still counts right? – Sure, it’s still at the farmer’s market. – We’re thinking more about our food. – Because we’re living in a
world where one trillion dollars of food gets wasted, every year. – 25% of all calories
produced never get consumed. – I think about these things. So, with the exceptions I just mentioned, I shop at the farmer’s market. – The farmer’s market. – Unless I’m really hungry. – Then I just go to
McDonald’s or something. – But only when I’m hungry. – Or…tired. – Or if I’m just in the
mood for some McDonald’s. – But I definitely buy a potato or something from the farmer’s
market once a month at least. – At least. Certainly once every two months because I care about the environment. Although I do also drive
to the farmer’s market. – That’s probably not good. – Well, at least you could say I’m trying. Kind of. – Kind of. – Kind of. Hey’s it’s Greg from CollegeHumor. Thank you for watching.
