Saturday Green Links – 3/12
I don’t get the uproar over the Whole Foods in JP. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to hate something like McDonald’s? Why do liberals turn on each other so much?
- The hypocrisy of the outcry over Whole Foods and Wal-Mart – Boston Globe. I admit to disliking Wal-Mart, but my brother actually loved working there.
- Whole Foods Isn’t as Expensive as People Think It Is – Boston Globe. A comparison of products at local grocery stores shows Whole Foods’ prices are solidly middle of the road.
- Is Whole Foods Really More Expensive? Part 2 – Boston Globe. A second look shows meat more expensive at Whole Foods. (But people eat too much meat, anyway.)
- Comparison Shopping: Organic Staples – Farm Share Stories. A similar comparison of organic food results in the advice to avoid the organic aisle at Shaw’s at all costs.
- Study says keeping planes at gate increases efficiency – Boston Globe. I love efficiency.
- What Products I Use – Retro Housewife Goes Green. I also love peeking in people’s medicine cabinets.
- More Meatless Mondays – Civil Eats. The Meatless Monday meme has really caught on. It’s really nice to see what an effect a single blogger can have.
- Confessions from an Eco-Sinner – Mindful Metropolis. It’s ridiculous the things that weigh on us sometimes. Recently my renewed Starbucks addiction has been making me feel terrible.
- Antibiotics (Misused) – Ecocentric. 80% of all microbial drugs are administered to animals. Because we overcrowd them. It’s ridiculous.
- Our Hero: Matthew Damon of Penobscot Home Performance. I love seeing stuff like this in Maine. And they’re hiring…
- Maine’s Green Future Debated – Boston Globe. On the other hand, I hate seeing jerks like this in Maine. Whatever happened to the state’s independent streak?
That’s it. As always, if you find anything interesting this week, send it along.
