How exactly does buying organic & sustainable products help you?
Besides that organic & sustainable products are usually better for your health (fewer or no toxins, fewer or no cancer-causing ingredients, etc.), by voting organic & sustainable with our dollars we can shift mainstream demand towards healthier, safer & better products -- and live healthier lives, help ensure clean air and water, and do our part in giving our children the future they deserve.
The need to shift towards healthier, more sustainable consumption is real. The United Nations recently warned that "continued failure to tackle climate change was putting at risk decades of progress in improving the lives of the world's poorest people" -- which we all know affects us no matter where we live. Both governments and businesses are committing substantial resources to addressing these issues, and they make a great case for the why; a few relevant links:

Wal-Mart's (yes, Wal-Mart's!) Sustainability Page

Plan A from Marks & Spencer
You've probably heard of the movie "Inconvenient Truth"; though you might not entirely agree with the conclusions, their site -- Climate Crisis -- has a wealth of information. This is a non-partisan issue, with both Republicans and Democrats talking about the need for legislation that protects our families and our communities from the negative externalities of environmental degradation -- but the strongest votes we make are those of our dollars, and so change begins with each of us in the products & services we buy everyday.
