When I'm traveling, I won't necessarily know where to find eco-friendly shops. How can I make good choices?

Hit The Markets

Make a habit of buying locally grown food at markets. Not only does this deliver a more picturesque, authentic experience than shopping in generic grocery stores, but it also cuts down on food miles. According to Food Share Toronto, half a kilogram of local lamb generates seven grams of CO2 in transportation, while the same amount imported from New Zealand spews out eight kilos of carbon. Buying from local farmers helps cut down on fuel emissions.
