26. Nor mine!

I learned during the Watergate era - don't buy books by crooks. Extrapolate that out a little and you come to the buying-green philosophy - support only responsible companies and retailers with your purchasing power. Buy local. Support the mom & pop stores in your neighborhood - the same ones that tend to get bulldozed by the big monsters. So I will NOT patronize an outfit like Walmart - that nickels 'n' dimes its employees while raking in obscene profits, serves its customers extremely poorly by offering almost NO help on the floor if you're unable to find something you're looking for, or you have questions, and undercuts all competition thus driving it out of business.
