I really like this article because it seems almost more personal. Obviously the global effects of shipping food, such as pollution, are all many can talk about when arguing to eat locally. However I find that most people are out of sight out of mind kind of people and won't necessarily consider these risks important because they are not immediately affected. This article however makes some of the more personal, individual arguments for eating locally such as knowing what your local foods look like or how your surroundings look.
