Title: The whole world in your supermarket
The transport of foreign food products to Austria emits huge amounts of CO2. Local supermarket shelves contain regional as well as international products. However, the transport of grapes from Chile emits some 7 kilograms of CO2, while the transport of grapes from Austria’s own Burgenland emits only 8.8 grams. A workshop entitled “The whole world in your supermarket” gives children a feeling for a healthy lifestyle and playfully demonstrates how we can do something for the environment through our own nutritional choices.
