Do you buy out of season fruit and veg? why is this any more scandalous than shipping strawberries from South Africa just so they are availiable all year round?

I agree it's not very green but it's no less green than a lot of other things that go on every day of people would just stop and think about them!
Ummm.. As a matter of fact, I most certainly do not buy fruit, veg nor meat from South Africa! I try very hard to make sure that what I buy comes from Switzerland or at the very least the countries close to it. I try not to buy any fresh fruit or veg out of season. I don't buy strawberries in the winter. In fact, I don't even buy strawberries in the summer if they are not Swiss... and I have strawberry (and tomato) plants growing on my balcony as we speak.

I can't say I don't buy ANYTHING from "overseas" but I try not to.

Shipping strawberries from South Africa IS scandalous!
But, having said that, they only go one way! they don't come here then turn around & go right back....
