"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
Sounds great, but is organic and local?
Most of those labels are more for appealing to cause-based buyers than anything else. For instance, the certified organic label really doesn't mean that the food product is 100% organic, because a great many organic farmers cheat when the inspectors aren't around. This is well-known in the farming community, but isn't known by the average consumer.
