The True Cost of Food

I recently ran across this video on the Sierra Club website called "The True Cost of Food." The film was designed to raise awareness of the foods we eat and the real cost of that food in terms of money and environmental impact. Although I believe there may be an over-exaggeration in the "check-out price" (you’ll see what I mean), overall I think it’s a good educational film. The picture quality isn’t the best, but the sound is good and I think you will be able to get gist of it. Runtime: 15 min.

**EDIT**-  Google took the video down, I will see if I can find it somewhere else.  Ok, the best way to see this is to click this link and save it to your computer.  You will need to have Quicktime installed to view it.

Great video! It’s truly amazing how much you can save by going to the farmer’s market. I can actually get organic, local produce for cheaper than non-organics at the supermarket. Even if it was the same price, or a bit more expensive, I would still do it. It’s just such an easy choice!

It really is amazing how much cheaper the farmers market is compared to the supermarket. Besides it being cheaper, it’s just good clean fun. I really enjoy and look forward to going.

I’m glad you liked the video. I hope the quality of the picture wasn’t too bad.
