Survey: Has The Economy Changed Your Food Buying Habits?
In the UK, the Emine Saner writes in the Guardian that "Expensive, organic food is the middle-class indulgence that even the middle-classes can't seem to afford anymore." However Vanessa Farquharson writes in Canada's National Post that "It's true that many of the more sustainable foods on the market cost more than their mass-produced, brand-name alternatives. However, this doesn't mean it's more expensive to keep up a low-impact eating regime."- by shopping local and seasonal, and cooking from scratch, it can be quite economical.
