I just read this quote in Whole Living: Body and Soul, (a great magazine with tons of green and healthy living tips) and it really struck me.
“People complain about the price of eggs that could stretch a week but don’t blink at paying $5 for a latte that lasts 10 minutes.” – Nicolette Hahn Niman
It’s so true. It’s all about your priorities. Good food that is grown sustainably, animals that are treated well and not tortured and living in filth during their short lives, pesticide-free, natural foods – they’re all worth the price. At least to me. I’d way rather give up other things so I can afford to buy the food and other products that are important to me.
What are you willing to pay more for? Have you made any trade-offs so you can afford to buy these things?
