Think Globally, Act Locally


Over the years, the topic of Global market has become increasingly popular. The world has now become a global village. Although the advent of globalization has brought definite advantages, it has also some disadvantages. The primary purpose of this essay is to demonstrate the effect of the two of our meals in our life from both the ecological and economic point of view. This research is on my breakfast and dinner. I had two boiled eggs, a glass of fresh orange juice and a slice of wheat toast. For dinner, I had brown rice, grilled bake chicken, wheat roll, and a bottled of Ozarka water. In the following section, I will be discussing some important aspects relating to both the meals.

Discussion & Analysis

In this section, we will be discussing the place of origin of both the meals, the country that each part of our meal came from, the place where we have purchased the products from, and the process to get the products from the farm/laboratory to our table.

Place of Origin of Meals

All the products included in my breakfast and dinner, bought from H-E-B supermarket, and each component of my meal originated from different locations, namely:

Boiled eggs: Jackson, MS

Bag of wheat bread: Neena, WI
