We are at the supermarket, and I need laundry soap. There is the regional-oecological possibility: 15 washes for 15 Franks. In the next shelf sits the budget soap, 25 washes for 4.50.
'What about your oecological resolutions?', asks the Boss when I grab the cheap bottle.
Wait a minute.
Sure, my consciousness is not so clean with this decision, BUT - and I always have to remember myself to that - the plans were not to spend as much money as possible on everything that says 'Bio' on it. The resolution was to find affordable and creative solutions for a greener life that leaves me integrated in our society.
I'm off to do the washing. (By the way: Do you have a dryer? Do you use it? Drying clothes uses three times as much energy as the actual washing. Think about it...)
