What could be more local, seasonal produce than your own home grown food? 

If you have space, even a windowsill, growing your own gives you the freshest, most local food possible. 

It's fun too. You can grow herbs, tomatoes and salad leaves in pots in small spaces.

Herbs are often transported by air freight to arrive in our stores. Simply growing a pot of basil, rosemary, oregano or any of your favourite herbs can save a significant amount of transport emissions. As air freight has over a 100 times the impact of sea freight, those emissions from small packets of herbs can quickly mount up. 

It is difficult to quantify the carbon savings of some Actions. In this case we allocate a nominal CO2e per year. This is not reflective of the actual potential savings but to show that you are making a difference.  If possible we will provide representative calculations at a later date.
