Would you like to know where your food is from?
I think this would encourage companies to become more locally focused, as well. That there is a standard on what is considered "Local". That we CARE. Because if no one knows we care, how will things ever change?
This project has opened my eyes to where everything comes from. I've been surprised to find that nearly everything can be sourced locally - but why isn't it with bakeries and restaurants around the state?
And so I wonder--would you, the consumer, be interested in knowing that the muffin you eat or the bread you buy is at least 85% local? I know I would.
I created this logo, and I'm going to try to encourage "Local" companies to use it. If they use at least 85% of their ingredients from local sources, this little gem will grace their packages.
I'm not trying to make any money on this. I'm simply trying to create awareness about where our food comes from.
I would like Seattle to set the standard on local foodies nationwide. I would like to create change from the ground up, and show companies that eating locally is important for a healthier future.
But that's me.
What do YOU think?
