The 100 Mile Trial : Sunday 30th November – Saturday 6th December, 2008

A Californian orange has traveled over 12,800 kms to get to you - that's a lot of food miles!

This is typical of much produce in our globalised food production system. Every mile/kilometre our food travels is likely to mean greater greenhouse gas emissions.

The 100 Mile diet has taken off in many places around the world, with people experimenting with sourcing their food from within an 100 mile (160km) radius from where they live.

As part of the Ethical Consumer Group, various households around Melbourne took on a week's trial in the first week of December 2008. Find out more about their plans, progress and discoveries by following the links below.
