Being “Green” is expensive. The whole thing about the hybrid car hoo-hah should have shown you that. You’d have to drive your hybrid for 110 years to recoup your investment. Today, boys and girls, we’re going to tackle food.
Let’s start with “Green” foods. I’m going to actually tell you that for the purposes of this comparison, it’s “organic” food vs. regular food. Now, I don’t know about you but my paycheck certainly isn’t 3, 4, or 5 times bigger than it was last year. I can’t justify jeapordizing the kids’ college funds in order to feed them “green” food. Worse yet, you have to take someone’s word for it that these thing
weren’t grown in Panama or Chile where pesticides like DDT are still
Now, these prices come from my local supermarket and my local organic food store. Your mileage may vary, as they say. But as you can see, the price per ounce for “organic” food is several times what the price per ounce is for “regular” food.
