I’m into organic stuff. Food, products, you name it. There is a slight problem, however. I can’t afford it. Organic stuff is expensive because of how it’s produced, and there is still (unfortunately) only a limited market for it.

These cooperatives allow people to buy in bulk and divide the cost, thus allowing them to purchase organic foods.

Sure, it may cost a little bit more, but isn’t it worth skipping that extra cup of Starbuck’s to know that you’re helping yourself and your family to be healthier? Isn’t it worth skipping McDonald’s for lunch to help local family farmers stay in business? Isn’t it worth not buying that one extra Christmas present to help make our world a cleaner and safer place to live?
