By the time I've bought mostly organic, near-whole, Australian grown/made/produced, fish safe, whale safe, chemical free and ethically produced - I'm exhausted!

Or also known as "whole foods don't have nutrition panels" - why we try to buy products that have no nutritional information on them.

It's exhausting. What do you fight for? Australian grown, made and produced? Imported but certified organic? Locally but conventionally produced? It's so hard to make these judgements but it helps to have a heirachy.

My personal bent is that it is locally produced. I won't buy produce from other countries - it is just wrong to eat things that are flown in from across the world. I preferentially buy locally made organic produce, but that's not always available.

I agree with what you're saying about needing a hierarchy. My personal decision is that I'd like to buy organic chicken/eggs but they're very expensive, so I buy free range. Not as good in respect to chemicals and stuff, but gives an immediate 'bang for my buck' back to the chooky.
