The burn barrel don't care.
LOL @ Reed Jones.
"I'll only shop at stores that make it a point to dump chemicals in our waterways."
Good on ya mate! Love the Aussie humour. (Queen's English)
Australian? I thought Jim Carrey was Canadian.
I like people who smile and wave..
HWMNBN was more a pretentious git than an Australian, I'd say.
The voice of experience!
I think most people shop where its most convenient for them - either close to their home or at least on their way home.
So will it be ok to buy gas at the new green hyvee to kill unwanted weeds?
Use diesel. Does a good job on the weeds and isn't nearly as flammable.
Oreilly's sells battery acid. Give some to the weeds, the ph goes to 2, the plant dies, then the limestone neutralizes the acid. Keep the hose near in case you get some on you or your clothes as it is very corrosive. And don't taste it.
Hopefully some future employer doesn't see Reed's comment, they might be put off by it. Once it's on the internet, it's on there forever.
If Reed Jones is in fact his real name, he's probably wanted in Austrailia under his real name.
Nobody likes environmentally friendly stores, nobody
No, do they have the selection and prices I want to pay?
You fools. That's Robbie Williams. He's British, and he's still singing that Angels song.
Robbie Williams Angel live
Aussies have always been friends of the US. Not sure if he is a wannebe, though.
I only shop at stores where one can club baby seals
Unwanted weeds? Who wants weeds?
I only shop at Exxon & BP and where Al Gore says it's ok.
I shop at a store if:
1. It has the product I want.
2. It's cheaper than other stores.
3. It's convenient to get to.
4. It's in a safe area.
5. I need the product NOW (otherwise I might order online).
Environmental friendliness is pretty far down on the list.
Do you mean like the Natural Grocer store that replaced an existing building with one three to four times larger? Is that what you mean by environmentaly friendly? Leaving a larger carbon footprint in the name of progress?
Reed has the courage not to be a sheeple. Or believe in something because it is "trendy".
But I forgot, Many people in Lawrence don't like opinions that vary from theirs.
Yes. I'm always looking for an excuse to drive my Hummer by myself.
Especially when my Corvair is in the shop.
Any building using less energy somehow is significant. Means less radioactive waste coming out of the smokestack .
Only if all the store's electricty is generated by unicorn toots. And all their employees make at least $17.50 an hour.
Only if I was driving a LPG or a electric powered vehicle and my house was using the solar panels for the electricity.
Question is how green are the batteries that store the charge and, when the batteries done then how green is it to dispose them?
Maybe. If they are demonstrably more environmentally friendly and they aren't excessively more expensive. A "We fight global warming" sign on the door won't work.
I do most of my shopping at the Dillons near my home. Everything else I buy online.
Reed has the right idea.
Reminds me of this little clip, http://www.freakonomics.com/2011/04/21/conspicuous-conservation-and-the-prius-effect/
