Be Aware of what you are Supporting- DPF #497

Perhaps you do not realize what you are supporting with your lifestyle, your money expenditures, and perhaps your ignorance.

I for years “chose” to support the alcohol industry and its incessant potrayal of beer/whisky as “cool” and hip, the tobacco industry and its targeting of consumers through movies and tv, the meat industry with its horrendous treatment of animals in industrial cage farming methods, and the processed sugar giants of the food industry with its lacing otherwise benign foods with an addictive drug essentially.

I still at times support the gasoline industry, despite my best efforts to ride the train as much as possible, and perhaps my egg- eating habit could use some conscious shopping as to the conditions of the chickens from whom I get eggs.

I still have a ways to go, I am not out of the woods yet, but I am beginning to feel better about where I put my money, and how I use my time.
