ORGANIC, SCHMANIC


Organic sheets? So it contains carbon? Like everything else surrounding me at Target! Marketing is using the term incorrectly.

My son was in a Target store and, recalling an anecdote I tell my students to make a point about organic vs. inorganic, sent me the above photo and caption. Thanks, son!

This is an outrage!

I've made a resolution to avoid all consumer goods produced in IMO certified facilities.

This is a usage that drives me crazy - I keep on asking what non-organic food would be. Rocks? Sand? Unless they've had organic chem, nobody gets the point. And now they think I'm a little strange....
