Practicing responsible consumerism needn’t be limited to eating. Here’s a thoughtful post on becoming a more thoughtful consumer in general:
The writer reports that watching Food Inc. changed her eating habits, and she’s now a 6-day a week pescatarian who focuses on local, organic food. She buys higher-quality (and therefore longer-lasting) clothing, shops at thrift stores and alters clothing instead of purchasing new where possible, takes public transportation instead of cabs, and avoids bottled water.
