Okay, so the economy is bad.Â And, yes, we have all had to make changes and/or sacrifices in the name of saving a buck.Â But can this whole mess be put to good use?Â Yes it can!Â While you are already watching your spending closely, try keeping an eye on what you buy and not just how much it costs.
We can blame the big corporations for getting us into this economic mess and much of it may be deserved, but we the people are out there buying stuff up, so letâ€™s make it count.Â We are still a capitalist country and true to this is supply and demand.Â We buy it, they keep making it.Â If we buy cheaply made, toxic-laden products, that is what the big companies will make.Â If we purchase nontoxic, safe products made with pure ingredients, the makers of these products will keep making them.Â Not only that, but the producers of organic, wild-crafted and natural ingredients will have to make more of them which is not only good for us but for the planet as a whole.
Our disposable way of living is a big part of what has gotten us into trouble, so not all of this can be blamed on the big corporations.Â They are simply providing what we have asked for.Â As Joshua Onysko of Pangea Organics put it:
Joshua has it right.Â Now is the time to make every cent count.
