Okay, so I've been thinking about this a bit since the posts about Trader Joe's stance on free-range eggs. (that is, they're going to keep selling them).
The thing is...I, and many other VBers shop at more mainstream stores (Albertson's, Jewel, Publix, etc.) that sell factory farmed eggs. There is little (no?) outcry against these stores for their policies.
I'm wondering why that is...why do some feel that TJ's, et. al. should be held to a different standard. I'm questioning this is the most non-judgemental way I know how..so please don't be offended. I too, am a bit taken back by TJ's stance on the issue and find myself debating whether I shall continue to shop there. However, I shop at my local co-op, and formerly at Dominick's (when I lived too far away from the coop), who both sell factory farmed eggs.
Additionally, TJ's, Whole Foods, WildOats, etc. all sell meat, and other items which I would prefer weren't available.
Just wondering how/where people draw the line on where to shop?
