Please welcome our newest eco-hero to The Green Phone Booth. Erin aka The Conscious Shopper will be wielding her wallet here every Wednesday and teaching us all a thing or two about approaching life, or at least shopping, with more thought. A huge welcome to Erin!
Though she seems like a mild-mannered mother of three boys, The Conscious Shopper carries a powerful secret weapon - her wallet. With this weapon, she fills her fridge with local and organic foods, stocks her shelves with non-toxic cleaners, dodges excess packaging, and searches for eco-friendly clothing...while trying to stay within her budget. Will she be deceived by the pitfalls of Greenwashing? Can she defeat her arch-nemesis Advertising and its sinister sidekick Cheap Plastic Crap? Stay tuned to find out.
