recreating paradise - vote with your wallet shopping



The urban landscape has become an industrial prairie, increasingly devoid of wildlife and biodiversity - including the pollinators that the 'industry' needs for its own survival.

As multimillionaires increasingly buy out smaller farms it can feel like we, as individuals, have no power to stop the rot.

But we do. Every time we shop. Examples:

Organic butter and milk
