Time to be Proactive?

Wondering what you can do to improve our ecological dilemma? Get a copy of The Better World Shopping Guide and find out which companies and their products cause the most problems. Take the guide with you and see if that brand of milk, gas, peanut butter, or cereal you’re buying is from a “corporate villain”. You can buy a copy at our next service or HERE.
