Systemic solutions for a sustainable future? (4)

Go Organic for our next generation.
One common remark about organic foods
is the relatively high price.

While I personally believe,
organic food is not necessarily expensive*,
I do agree that there is some substantial investment involved.

Incidentally, I attended an ISO training course recently,
and the trainer was quoting this very meaningful line:

"If Quality Control costs,
what cost is the mistake we make?"

Extending the remark above to Organic Living,
we could also ask:

"If Organic Produce costs,
what cost is the pesticide we take in?"

-- in other words,
when we grumble about "pricey" organic foods,
are we actually being penny wise, pound foolish?

If we all want a sustainable future,
we need to work this out together,
that is to do a paradigm shift in our mentality,
and to take one baby step at a time,
to gradually adapt to organic living.

It will be tough in the beginning, like anything else in this world,
but we will get better, day by day,
when we know how to plan our diet and nutrition and lifestyle
to reduce the cost of organic living :)

It's do-able.

The issue lies in whether we are willing to expand our comfort zone =)

With love,

to a McChicken Meal of SGD6.25 at MacD, we can't be calling organic food expensive :P]
