I’m reading Andrew Simms’ book Tescopoly just now. It makes for uncomfortable reading – revealing some truly sinister nuggets of information about the UK supermarket giant Tesco, it’s British and American counterparts. We made a decision a while back not to shop in supermarkets, and although we occasionally find ourselves in the aisles of our local supermarket, we have succeeded in avoiding Tesco altogether.
Browsing the news pages today, I saw an interesting story about Tesco and how it treats its workforce in Poland. There’s something of an uprising going on by workers who claim Tesco’s treatment of them is “subhuman”.
If you still buy your organic produce from a supermarket, please do take some time to research the consequences of that – economically, culturally and personally. An easy way to start is to read Andrew Simm’s book – it really is a fascinating insight. Then take some time to walk or cycle along your high street and consider what you might be able to do to avoid the weekly supermarket trip in the car. If your high street proves disappointing, don’t give up – a swift internet search for veg boxes in your area could be the first step towards a truly organikal life.
