The Business Insider just named Burlington,VT one of the 15 hottest American cities of the future for its commitment to sustainability. The article places emphasis on Burlington’s sustainable food scene, home to many restaurants whose dishes rely heavily on local, organic fare. “Much of the food consumed in town come from local farms or from the Intervale, a nonprofit organization that cultivates 350 acres of land to provide food for the city residents,” the article stated.

It was also noted that people shop for groceries in stores the sell Vermont-made products—a statement that puts a big smile on our faces here at Healthy Living!
