Got milk? Organic in short supply, some Jacksonville-area stores report - Florida Times-Union

Got milk? Organic in short supply, some Jacksonville-area stores report - Florida Times-Union | Environmental Science 007 | Scoop.it

Organic Milk is in short supply for many Florida supermarkets. The shortage is due to the rising prices of organic feed, and the cost of out of state shipping. Organic farming is more exspensive than regular milk, because when using organic feed is more exspensive because it doesnt have any fertilizers or any other non-organic substance. Many consumers will not pay the hgiher price for organic milk, but what they dont know is that it is healthier and that yet it may cost a little more, your getting the better product.

Mac Donald Group 3's curator insight, May 10, 5:56 PM

As McDonald's is making changes in order to adapt to the new needs of consumers, it is important to analyse the way it is changing.

 

Apart from improving the service and menu, McDonald’s is also changing the way it used to do its principal dish, Hamburgers. This had been the principal critic of this restaurant and the way they made it was even more criticized, because is synonymous of unhealthy food habits and a factor of obesity in many countries. The goal of those changes is to regain customer’s trust, giving them the image of what they eat is healthy for real and won´t affect their health.

 

This could be the biggest modification made by this company as the recipe has been always the same and has attracted consumers, and this for sure will change the way people think in McDonald’s, although is difficult to gain new clients that believe this restaurant to be unhealthy

Human side of population control | Peak Oil News and Message ... | Environmental Science 007 | Scoop.it

Our population has different growth spurts, due to the trend of society at a certain time. Undeveloped countries are having to many kids, which they cannot support. These countries need to be taught and educated about family planning and birth control. In developed countries, familes are having fewer kids and both parents are working. Our population as a whole needs to level out before there are not enough food and structures to withstand our population.
