Consuming local non processed foods is one way that we live more sustainably. We grow a lot of our food and what we don't we buy locally. Processed foods in general are terrible for the environment and the body. It causes damage from the way the food is grown or chemically produced/processed, to the packaging, materials and production, fossil fuel in the shipping, and disposal of the packaging.
Some of the ways we do this is by purchasing wheat berries and grinding the grains for flour to make our own bread. Instead of $6 or more per loaf of organic bread it's closer to $2 a loaf. And tastes so much better!
Also check out your local farmers market for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). You can often get a weekly basket of local produce for an inexpensive cost.
Hanging dry the cloth diapers and clothes saves a lot of electricity. (if you have an electric dryer) Plus the sun is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, because of the UV rays.And it helps to whiten whites.
