Cordillera - Caraga, Albay representative for Miss Philippines Earth, Patrixia Santos encourages everyone to become responsible in choosing the purchases that they make. 
In her statement in Miss Philippine Earth official Facebook page, she said that buying local produce directly from the farmers  is one of the the best ways to help the farmers and boost the economy as well as lessen fuel consumption and can save the environment from pollution. 

"Agriculture is a major industry in the Philippines. One of the best possible ways to save the currently dying industry while preserving our environment is choosing to buy local produce! 
Buying local will not only boost the income of our farmers and the local economy. It will also cut back on environmental costs such as fuel consumption and air pollution, which both take a huge toll on the environment. This means that your carbon footprint is significantly reduced, as you avoid producing greenhouse gasses arising from unnecessary travel and refrigeration!
I buy my favorite broccoli fresh from a local farm in Baguio whenever I get the chance. You too should take the opportunity to make responsible and sustainable purchases where everyone wins!
So next time you crave broccoli (or any other commodities you need), think again before getting it from the nearest supermarket. Instead, make it a habit to buy your food from local markets and farmer stalls.
Let's all remember to volunteer our personal time to choose the better grocery alternatives to reduce the environmental impact of our food. 
When's the last time you bought food from a local farm? Let us know where you go to fulfill this duty to our environment, so we can give others how to make the same shopping choices!" 

Miss Santos have said it all so. Let's join this lady in her campaign and advocacy to  making better choices in our purchases and consumption.
