I look at the labels of everything I buy. I have a whole system that I use to help me make the right choices, for me, society and the environment. But I was thinking yesterday…why do I need to put in all the extra work just to make choices that should just be the norm?
I think we should start a movement where we flip everything over. I would love to go to the store and see the organic, free range eggs just called ‘EGGS’ and all other kinds of eggs need to tell you what they are not sustainable. So other eggs would say “eggs from chickens raised in subpar conditions” or something like that. This would make it easier for consumers to get information about the products they are buying. It would also encourage companies to get their act together because having to market your eggs as being from chickens raised in subpar conditions is probably not going to be all that great for sales….
