New Book – Ecologist Guide to Food

However, as investigative journalist Andrew Wasley reveals, much of our food comes with a hidden price tag.

But does the process of meeting Western demand for well-stocked supermarkets need to be this bleak? What if our mega-farms could harvest crops of 70,000+ vegetables each day and still offer fair pay, good living conditions and even social facitilites to their workers? What if drinking coffee could actually have a positive influence on reforestation? As well as uncovering the sometimes shocking practices in existence, this book takes a look at alternatives for the food industry, giving a voice to the positive pioneers going against the grain to produce food that is good for you, good for others and good for the planet.
