|Our purchases send a message|
We all know the rules of Eco-friendly buying. No purchase is better than a purchase. Buying used is better than buying new. And we try to differentiate between needs and wants.
When we've decided to make a purchase, there's another aspect to consider. Our purchases tell manufacturers what we want. They respond by filling the shelves with those items. We have the power to determine both the kinds of products which are manufactured and the types of companies manufacturing them.
So ask yourself ... do you want Eco-friendly products manufactured by companies doing their best to tread lightly on the earth and treat employees fairly, or will you settle for mass-produced items manufactured by companies who care more about their "bottom line" than the earth?
The choice is ours.
I believe strongly in supporting "green" purchases. To that end, I've been inviting Eco-friendly companies to offer you a discount on their products and services. These are people who are trying to make a living in a way which will not hurt the earth.
I'd like to introduce them to you. Even if you don't make the decision to purchase, I hope you'll visit their sites and support their efforts. If you do wish to patronize them, please click over to the Special Offers Page to take advantage of their generous discounts.
