Did you send your letter and email last week? Did you get your friends to? This weeks is tougher still and will hit the old pocket book. Not all of them are going to be easy.
The request: When you buy your groceries this week, if the option presents itself buy organic. Looking at the canned pintos, splurge and buy the organic pintos for 50 cents more. Some of you will no doubt quaff at this week’s request. You will say, as I would, but what about the extra money. I only ask you to do this week. Find out exactly how much it raises your grocery bill this week. Post that amount below. You may be surprised at that amount. What is saving the ocean worth to you weekly $10, $20, $50? I ask you to consider that amount this week. If you decide financially it is too much of a strain then by all means do what you can do. But try it just this week.
The reason: I could lay out a well-reasoned argument for why you should do this, but my preparations for my Sea of Cortez expedition (I will be live blogging!) limit my time. But common you know the reasons! Feel free to list them below if you want.
