Trendy Environmentalism, Part 2

I wrote a previous post on trendy environmentalism.  Today I was reading CNN Mondey, and came across this article.  It basically states that support for organic products is slipping - largely because people are skeptical that organic actually means anything anymore, and because it’s so stinking expensive.  And that proves my initial point.  If there’s no underlying value to ’living green’, and instead it’s just a response to savvy marketing and trying to keep up with the current trend, support will eventually wane.  And according to the above article, that’s exactly what is happening.  People jumped on bandwagon without adjusting their core beliefs.  And now that they’d rather save a buck than go organic or go without, the bandwagon is slowly emptying again.  My personal opinion is that in 6 to 12 months, you’ll be hard pressed to find a ‘going green’ magazine or news article.  We’ll be on to something new.

    nate,
    don’t give up hope - even oldies like me are switching slowly. yes cost does enter into the picture, but there are options out there that are a little less painful to peoples pocketbook. more and more articles are being published (especially this week) that are inspiring in their simplicity. those who want to learn how to adjust their lifestyles can teach; if we each continue to encourage someone in our sphere of influence, the possibilities of change can be great. you’re too young to remember the Wella Balsalm commercials, but it won’t be a “we” situation if you continue to train your kids in things healthy and wise. you and your family are on the right track.

  2. Nate Says:

    I think you are right on the money. My point is that the marketing push towards green / organic will fade - and we’ll be back where we started. Grass roots.

  3. mrs. varney-crawford Says:

    you might be right about the marketing angle. never thought i’d be part of a grass roots movement at the thatching stage of my life…
