Not to mention the “eco-friendly” choice for your daily fruit requirement should be actual fruit (less processing, less trucking, less gas).
What’s your opinion about juice boxes in lunches?
Not a big fan of Walmart. Why? Almost 20 years ago my mom owned a coffee shop in the small, but quaint downtown area of the town I consider myself from (we moved around a lot). Wal-mart set up camp practically outside the city limits. No one came downtown to shop and within a few years the downtown sort of dried up. My mother’s coffee shop went under as did other locally owned businesses. If you are concerned about what Wal-mart does, check out the work of Wake Up Walmart. Aside from squeezing out small business owners, Walmart’s wages are low enough that their employees qualify for food stamps and medicaid.
Thankfully the downtown area of my old hometown has made some changes to “the strip” and I think it is on an upswing. And my mom has moved on and changed careers, but her unique coffee shop was never replaced.
