On Thursday 21st January 2016 we went shopping in one of the local supermarkets (the population of Vysoké Mýto is 12, 000 and we have four supermarkets here, namely Lidl, Tesco, Penny and Albert) and wrote down the names of the countries from which the vegetables and fruits have been imported. It was really interesting how many products are local and how many are imported and from which countries. Then in the geography class we worked with the gained data and created two exel tables, one for vegetables and one for fruits - see them below. We have also created two quizzes to check how good at reading the facts from the table we are. In the end we created two interative maps in Thinglink which graphically show the products and the countries of their origine. We hope you will find it interesting too. LOL, the Czech team
Please, find the vegetables on page 1 and the fruits on page 2:

This was really interesting, thanks.
French people are more and more aware of the importance of buying local products.
Eating local is green. Local food is fresh. It is seasonalm. It is more pure. It enhances our environment. And buying local enriches our social community.
In our city, two shops with local producers have recently opened.

This is a really good idea! In Greece, people prefer and trust local products more nowadays.Locally grown food is full of flavour, has more nutrients and supports the local economy.There is also a tendency to buy biological products, which are healthier, but more expensive than conventional ones.You can find many local products, including biological ones, in a rich street market which takes place near Saint Paul's Cathedral in Corinth every Saturday morning.
