Don’t Buy Scotts Miracle-Gro
I don't blame Scotts.
I blame The System.
Have you ever noticed how the “Free Market” aka capitalism has a series of descriptive words that, when written on the Ten Commandments, are sins.
“Got a real steal,” “Made a killing,” etc.
Anyway, in order to become a Big Cheese and survive the kill-or-be-killed ethos of the capitlistic system, a company must do whatever it can to stay alive. This means always getting bigger. (If you're small, you will be taken over by a “hostile takeover.”)
So. Scotts became big. But there is always danger and a company's gotta do what a company's gotta do to stay alive.
Make things cheaper. Damn the birds.
Anyway, here is a great article about Scotts Miracle-Gro birdseed and how it's coated in chemicals that KILL BIRDS!
It even has a disclaimer on the label.
Well. We must do what we must do, right?
Help save the birds. Don't buy Scotts.
