Your Call 011408 Big and Green

Can you be big and green? On the next Your Call we’ll discuss the future of organic companies that have been bought by bigger, conventional ones. Burt’s Bees was bought by Clorox, Colgate-Palmolive owns 84 percent of Tom’s of Maine and Wal-Mart is now the largest retailer of organic vegetables in the country. Can green grow and still mean anything? If you buy an organic juice made by Coke are you being responsible, or buying a lie? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
