10 Ways to Be More Sustainable in La Plata County

Want to live a more sustainable lifestyle in La Plata County? Here are 10 tips to help you get started:
 
1. Eat more seasonal and local food.
It can be tempting to eat strawberries in winter, even though they've been grown in energy-intensive greenhouses and imported from halfway across the globe. As an alternative, do some research into what is naturally grown in our area and get the nutritional and other benefits of eating locally. You'll rediscover the pleasure of meals changing with the seasons and meet the people who produce and supply local food! Visit Healthy Community Food Systems (HCFS), the Growing Partners of SW Colorado, and Turtle Lake Refuge. Check out HCFS’s Food System Tools, like the Year-Round Local Food System Calendar. The Durango Farmers Market also provides local food during the summer season and at special times throughout the winter.
