I use the iPhone app “The Guide to Ethical Supermarket Shopping” every time I step into a supermarket. I have discovered all sorts of interesting things – like it is impossible to buy cream cheese from an ethical company in my local supermarket, and that Woolworths own a whopping amount of pokies machines in NSW.
The people who brought us the great book, webiste and application will launch a new website called “Local Harvest” in February. Local Harvest is an new Australian national initiative aiming to help people find local sources of food and to grow their own food. The site will contain a directory of sustainable food in Australia, and DIY articles on how you can learn to produce more of your own food. You can sign up to the site now to be included when the site is launched. More information is available on the Local Harvest website.
