All American citizen have rights. All Americans companies have rights too, and as far as this Congress and this Supreme Court are concerned, the rights of the for-profit assembly outweigh those of individual citizens.

Since the EPA, USDA, Food & Drug Administration, (etc…) have limited consumer protection powers, we must rely on the proverbial invisible hand.

Every decision you make can be a moral decision, every dollar you spend can be a vote for a healthier, more sustainable world. Call it responsible consumerism, stewardship, eco-nomics or voting with your pocketbook, sometimes it’s the little things that make the most impact. And when you consume like America does, the little things are enormous.

Look for these labels:

USDA

And of course, REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!

Full Disclosure: I don’t work for the Environmental Working Group, but I would be an intern again if I could create graphics and guides for them.
