Not if you take your head out of your butt… I think this is an excellent move for Whole Foods and BB&B. While the tar sands are being touted by politicians as “international security” from foreign oil, they’re really damaging to the region– it’s being polluted on at all levels: air, water, trees are being ripped up, and the PEOPLE living there are suffering the health defects of all that industrial waste in their water system (which is being quickly soaked up for oil refinement). This isn’t a tug of war between tree hugging hippies and industrial progress, it’s companies taking responsibility for their footprints and giving a damn for a change. KEEP IT UP, GUYS!
