Matt and I have been reducing the amount of meat we eat because raising and producing meat is more taxing on the environment. We do still eat meat a couple of times a week and thanks to Burban Mom’s most recent post we will be looking into more sustainable meat. I have been kind of lazy into changing the meat we consume because here in town we only have two major chain grocery stores (no Whole Foods, no Sprouts) and I have never seen grass fed beef at either. Of course, I haven’t bothered with asking the butcher either, I just didn’t expect to find it. I will have to check into it more the next time I go to the store, but if not, thanks to localharvest.org I did find a local farm that will deliver grass fed beef to your door. How convenient is that? It is way more meat than Matt and I would need so I would probably con some family members into eating more natural and sustainable meat in the process, an added bonus.

On a side note here is a link to a new website that will help you make those small changes that really do make a big difference:
