Have you been to Hotcouponworld's green sister site, Organic Grocery Deals
My thing is, not everyone can afford to be green. Sometimes, we have members who can barely make ends meet. Green might not be for them in purchasing, but they can do thinks about how they handle the waste from packaging, reusing jars, etc.
I think once you've gotten to a point where you're comfortable, then you can start making changes in your purchasing. But you have to be there financially first. You can't let going green break the bank for you because THAT'S not sustainable. So Organic Grocery Deals is really about where shoppers are starting to add to their stockpiles the green element.
Certainly, individual applesauce cups for example, are going to have an impact whether there is organic or non-organic applesauce inside the cups. But being ready financially to start couponing for the organic variety might have an impact on how the apples were produced and what that does to the land, and then of course, recycling the containers from either brand is a good way to reduce that environmental footprint.
It's all about baby-stepping to a greener way of life. But you have to be in a good spot with your finances to be ready to spend the $1 difference on the organic applesauce cups over the non-organic. And that's what the folks at OGD are looking to do.
Hope that makes sense!
