Flyer with gift wrapped bix and following

Before you buy that gift, ask yourself...
Will it make you happy?
Will your family love you more for getting it?
Will your friends respect you more for having it?
Do you really need it?
Was it manufactured under conditions that helped protect
our earth, air & water?
Did the company that manufactured it hire American workers?
Were they paid a fair living wage and decent benefits?
Did the company return a good portion of its profits in the form of equitable taxes and
increased job opportunities for American workers?
If the answer to most of these questions is “NO,” don’t buy it. In fact,
DON’T BUY ANYTHING!
If you must shop, buy from local, independent merchants and craftspeople who give back
to our communities.

i live in a mixed working class/middle class neighorhood in Oakland . Within a couple of miles of my place is a Albertson's, safeway , trader joe's and a Whole foods . Of them Albertson's and Trader Joe's are the overall the cheapest places to shop with Whole Foods (aka Whole paycheck ) being the most expensive . But they're ALL considerably cheaper than the ''Independent local businesses "'.
But working class folks are supposed to pay 15 to 50 % more on the dubious unproven assertion that they give back to the community ?
