I have never figured out why bikinis cost more than full-piece bathers. Similarly, eating locally or in a more sustainable way appears to mean spend more money.
After only a few days foray into investigating sourcing food and household items locally, less kilometres appears to mean that I want organic, biodynamic, or something else considered a niche product or niche market.
It appears that just wanting u beaut food staples closer to home are special in some way.
I find myself nodding in agreement with the various ethical reasons why I ‘should’ obtain my goods from various places, but paying three to five times the price is at odds with what I understand about ‘sustainability’.
Anyway, I will investigate further:
- Cooks with a Conscience
- Mimsbrook Farm and Biodynamic Food Stores
- Slow Foods Perth
- Natures Organics (manufacture Earth Choice household cleaning products)
- Only Australian Groceries (assist with identifying Australian products and perhaps replace Electrolley)
- Dick Smith Foods
