a strange new organic juxtaposition

Today while mowing my front lawn, I found in my ditch, which is next to the street, a piece of litter. When I bent to pick it up, I saw that it was the empty wrapper for some relatively expensive looking organic nutrition bar. It sure didn't look recyclable either. In any case, it's *definitely* not biodegradable. I thought to myself "Self, why would one buy organic and then litter?" My self had no reply

I've often felt that the 'organic' drive (at least in Sydney) is just another example of consumerist individualism. I will live longer, be healthier and feel less guilty. Or at least, that's how it's commonly marketed.
