I always knew that my food didn’t just appear there, that it had to travel there. I knew that certain things might have come from Mexico or Florida, but until I really got into it, I didn’t realize the scale of this. The companies use little tricks like packaging the produce in America, even if it was grown in Brazil. This allows them to say “made in America” they add a little fine print saying packaged = made and they are done. I found this concept art over at Design Verb, it shows tomatoes with a luggage check tag on it and then a receipt showing the price and distance of the foods.
While looking around at this I came across a movie that is in theaters now. You will most likely only find it in your local independent theater though, but it looks great! I have added it to my Netflix Queue and can’t wait to watch it. So check it out!
