So how did going organic affect your pocketbook? I imagine for many of you it didn’t add as much as you thought it would. This weeks will be a little easier and that is why I will ask you to continue it through the year.
The request:Go to the Seafood Watch and download a chart for your wallet or purse. Carry it everywhere you go from now on. Adhere to it and harass others to to the same.
The reason:Again, I could lay out a well-reasoned argument for why you should do this, but you know all the reasons. The good news is that I’ve moaned about all this before, again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again.
1b. Keep reading DSN and participating in the Just One Thing Challenge
2. Use no plastic grocery and shopping bags for the next week. Use, and purchase if necessary, reusable bags. Recycle all plastic bags around the house at a participating location.
3. Start pestering the hell out of Trader Joes.
4. When you buy your groceries, if the option presents itself, buy organic. The goal here is to be conscious about your buying decisions buy organic, opt for less packaged goods, and buy locally when you can.
