  • The make-food-organic Charity

    July 13th, 2010
    ea, fairtrade, money, organic
    In discussing my previous entry on not buying organic food, I realised I could be more specific about what a "make food organic" charity could look like. You would donate money, the charity would find places like pizza shops or prisons that would not normally consider paying more for organic food, and the charity would pay the price premium so that they could buy organic food instead. If you believe in buying organic food [Edit 2010-07-14: for good-doing reasons], I submit you should also believe this charity is the best one you could give your money to.

    (This charity could just as well be a "make-food-fair-trade" or "make-food-local" one)
