Quote for the Day

“Let us remember, always, that we are the consumers. By exercising free choice, by choosing what to buy, what not to buy, we have the power, collectively to change the ethics of the business of industry. We have the potential to exert immense power for good – we each carry it with us, in our purses, cheque books, and credit cards.”

~Jane Goodall, “A Reason for Hope”

I always try to keep this in mind when I'm shopping.

I was in Goodwill yesterday (with a specific item in mind- did not find it and left without buying anything... willpower) and they have a new promo they played on the overhead about people of all walks of life shopping in their stores and one of the types listed was "the socially conscious."

The "socially conscious" type mentioned on the promo makes me smile. :) I was in a huge thrift store yesterday and, although the books called to me (and my husband) we left without purchasing one. And it was buy-one-get-one-free!
