Sustainable Table is an environmental not-for-profit organisation that provides Australians with the tools and information to make ethical eating easy. To the left is their ethical shopping pyramid to benefit our health and our environment. The green section of the pyramid is the best. If we can shop mostly from these sources (e.g. Farmer's markets and bulk food stores) and only buy what we need - it is better for the environment and our pocket. 

"With between 30% and 60% of our personal eco-footprint embodied in the food that we buy, reducing your eco-footprint is not as hard as you may think. Simply by starting to consider your own consumption patterns and altering the way you shop can make a huge difference." [www.sustainabletable.org.au]
