With many markets closed for the winter and a limited supply of seasonal foods, locally grown fruits and veggies are harder to come by.

A few months back, Collin Dunn of Planet Green made a list of 7 ways to keep green this winter. While it may be a little late in the season to implement some of these steps into your daily diet, many of them can be applied to all four seasons! Remember, it’s never too late to “go green.”
