When Basia told me about her involvement in a cooperative I was really excited. The whole idea is very close to my own heart and something definitely worth educating people about. I do hope you will find the interview and the idea interesting. I am leaving the comments section open this time. Please feel free to share your thoughts with us or just let us know you've enjoyed the read. Thank you!
Episode 1 - The one where Basia tells us about a cooperative.
How long have you been involved in that?
I have been involved for over 2 years.
What made you interested in it?
I’m a mother of two and when I had my first child, I started to think about what I wanted to feed him with. Unfortunately, at that time there wasn’t a lot of organic food in supermarkets and there was only one organic shop in my city which was extremely expensive for me. I started to search for alternatives, after two years somebody began a food cooperative in my city (thank you Wiola!). I joined our cooperative in the first six months and the beginnings were exciting. It was a new chapter in my life, now I am so much more conscious of my consumer decisions and I do appreciate this knowledge every day. Sometimes we forget that we can vote for changes with our wallet and the way how we spend our money. I believe this is the power which we should use intentionally.
