The 10-Step Tomato

Today's grocery stores have no seasons; oranges, strawberries, apples, and pears are available year-round, when a century ago they would have been available only during their harvest seasons. Now they are shipped around the world from warm-weather growing areas, such as Mexico. Mexican tomatoes are available in Canadian grocery stores all year round, even during Canadian tomato growing season, and they are usually cheaper than Canadian tomatoes.

This information graphic details the long journey tomatoes take to reach Canadian grocery stores, and encourages viewers to consider the carbon footprint of their food choices.
