Being green



How far will you go to be a green consumer?  Will you choose biodegradable packaging, even if it costs more?  Some people do not see this as a problem, but what if the packaging has another annoying side effect?  Those new SunChips bags that are biodegradable are not making any friends in the green movement.  The bags are so loud and noisy that consumers have stopped buying them, enough so that SunChips noticed, and consequently the noisy bag is going away.  Read all about the quirks of this noisy “green” option on page 1B of the October 6 edition of the Times. Do you have an awkward SunChips bag story to share with us?  If so, post it below in the comments!
