Buying and eating organic food isn't always as green as you might hope. If your organic potatoes are coming from the Peruvian Andes, for instance, those delicious causas are probably leaving a hefty carbon footprint. For truly local eating, the Locavore app detects where you are in the U.S., tells you what foods you can find locally grown and in season and plots local farmers' markets and other pertinent info in Google Maps. The app also connects you to extra info on Wikipedia and recipes using your green food product of choice.
