Sustainable Food

How cool is this -- Tom Philpott in Mother Jones writes about a group of design students who got together to come up with icons that would tell consumers about the food they are buying. Icons are an instant way to communicate how they were grown, the issues that people want to know. Take a look at what they came up with:
They even came up with one for heritage breeds! Featuring, of course, a chicken.
Twenty years ago, or even ten, this wouldn't have been on the radar. Now, it's common knowledge. how fast things can change!

When I first got chickens, that's where I was. I didn't know anything about them until the chicks I bought at the feed store grew up and the Buff Orpington started crowing.

Thanks for giving instant recognition to our heritage.
