SLOW food? food miles? Localvore? S.O.L.E?

There is much discussion going on amongst food bloggers here in OZ about the "ethics" of food.
SOLE food (Sustainable, Organic, Local or Ethical) is becoming more and more of an an acceptable was to shop/consume/eat. What was once the bastion of the inner city urban hippie, is now much more mainstream.

Hell, even 86 y/o Auntie Jean is buying only SOLE lamb, these days!

Restaurants are now even listing the supplier of ingredients on menus.

I've been doing the SOLE thing in the 'burbs, to see how easy it is. And it IS easy. Just ask some questions and be a more informed consumer. You CAN provided an ethical, local meal for 2 parents and 5 kids that WILL be consumed.

So, Does anyone here buy/consume/prep along these principles?

Saving the World, one dish at a time, or trendy "Movement of the Month"?

What say all of you??
