Organic farmers have asked the Government for permission to take a “holiday” from strict organic standards in an attempt to survive the recession.
In other words, we're not making enough money, so can we please fuck our "principles" to compete?
And even better:
In its attempt to cut costs, Toyota has scaled back production of many of its vehicle lines, including the Prius, and postponed the new factory investment in Mississippi. Also, even Toyota, which has strived relentlessly to establish its image as an environmentally conscious carmaker, can see that with crude prices back in double digits, the consumers are cheerfully postponing their need to go green.
Those pesky consumers! Always thinking with their wallets!
So, it's clear to me that "green fashion" will be one of the major casualties of the credit crunch.
Bring it on!
