Oh.... Happy Thanksgiving.
Did you know.... ?
About 92 cents out of every dollar you spend on food typically winds up in the pockets of processors, middlemen, and retailers.
"...artisanal producers like Joel compete on quality, which, oddly enough, is still a somewhat novel idea when it comes to food. “When someone drives up to the farm in a BMW and asks me why our eggs cost more, well, first I try not to get mad,” said Joel. “Frankly, any city person who doesn’t think I deserve a white-collar salary as a farmer doesn’t deserve my special food. Let them eat E. coli. But I don’t say that. Instead I take him outside and point at his car. ‘Sir, you clearly understand quality and are willing to pay for it. Well, food is no different: You get what you pay for."

Support White Friday (aka Buy Nothing Day)

Support White Friday

We have a responsibility to preserve the health of planet Earth for ourselves and future generations. It is abundantly obvious to a great many of us that rampant consumerism is killing our planet.

Affluenza.org provides a succinct overview of both problems and solutions we can embrace as we struggle to make sense of the puzzles and challenges to our survival.

For starters, please join us on Friday November 27th, 2009, in support of White Friday (Buy Nothing Day). As usual, Adbusters never disappoints. The point of drawing attention to our buying habits is to practice a lasting lifestyle commitment to consume less thereby producing less waste. Have fun buying nothing!
