Lessen Your Impact, Eat Locally Grown Food

October 26, 2009 by Carrie Wheeler

WoodfireblogThis week is No Impact  Week:  A challenge for people to live one-week with as little impact on the earth as possible.

What does that mean? No trash, no online shopping, foregoing your vehicle and eating healthy food produced locally.

The fact that I’m up late on the computer using energy for lights and bandwidth probably isn’t a great use of non-impact time.  I drove to work today. I unwrapped a DVD that had 2 layers of cellophane.

There are 2 downtown restaurants that incorporate local foods into their menu, so you can eat guilt and (relatively) carbon footprint free.

Pasta Bar
705 N. 1st Stl, Suite #110
Phoenix, AZ 85004

Pasta Bar’s fresh taste comes from using only the finest ingredients which includes local veggies and lettuces, Queen Creek Olive Oil, and home-made sausage.

Pizzeria Bianco
623 E Adams St.
Phoenix, AZ 85004
(602) 258 8300

The salads are made with local organic greens. The pistachios for the Rosa pizza are Arizona grown. The tomatoes…they’re from Phoenix.
