How many miles did your lunch travel to get to your plate? Even if we eat organic and fresh, most of us don’t know the origin of our produce, meats and dairy, and we often fail to realize that our food probably spends more hours in transit than we do getting to work. One of 18 Greener Gadgets finalists, the AUG/Living Goods Program is a conceptual mobile phone app that scans product barcodes and then instantly gives the low-down on the producer, how far the food has come, if the product is in season, historical pricing, detailed consumer ratings and your own purchasing history.
