Sometimes we don't know why things cost what they do...we get used to trying to find the cheapest price, but that's not always the best policy for the environment, economy or workers who dedicate their time. Just like we'd ask you to think twice about buying a $2.98 tank top from Forever 21 (at what cost is this shirt so inexpensive?), we ask you to consider why are those mass-produced dozen eggs only $1.99. There are huge positive environmental and animal welfare impacts by supporting smaller farmers who raise free-range eggs, as well as benefits to your health.
