Oranges from South Africa, asparagus from Peru, tomatoes from Holland, cherries from Argentina. The list is long… Despite the richness of our market garden and its proximity, almost half of the vegetables and greens we consume come from abroad.
The environmental and social cost associated with food is not being valued when it is marketed, without being aware that we are already paying this price with the imminent climate change.
The installation invites reflection and awareness of the environmental impact of agri-food trade, its huge carbon footprint and consequently its contribution to climate change. The aim is to show that the consumption of Km 0 products is an effective measure to combat global warming.
