and for some reason they all wear vests, most local people dont wear vests, whats the purpose of a vest?

just venting, me and the guys at work like to talk crap about the granola freaks, I forgot to add that some are also from OR and WA too.

Organic (and local) food is the most ethical choice. Buying food and being a consumer is voting with your money. Choosing to send your dollars to the big agrocorporations who use pesticides and monoculture and totally unnatural and harmful ways of raising crops and ship everything in from all corners of the earth, only to process them and ship them to you thousands of miles away afterwards, is not good for you, not good for the environment, not good for the food chain (pesticide and fertilizer runoff), and not good for anybody basically except the big oil, chemical, and agribusiness corporations. And obviously buying the bad stuff is the only thing a family can afford oftentimes, and it's unfortunate, but people have to live within their means.

Anyway, that's why it's important to support organic farmers as much as possible, so the price will come down and everyone can afford to buy healthier food and make the most ethical decisions in their food choices.

But I definitely never understood the point of a vest either.

I don't mean environmentally-conscious necessarily- as there are many people who really care about the environment but they don't necessarily dress/ look like a Granola. So I mean "granola" in a physical sense
It's hard to tell. I've found that Northwest natives often don't look granola, but they are. On the other hand, transplants from back east often look granola, but may not be necessarily.

Needless to say, there are tons of granola and granola-looking people in Portland.
