Viva La Eco Cheapo!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Why is it that the cheapos of the world are always given the stink eye -- they were green crusaders long before we even had a word for it!

In fact, they should rightfully be basking in the glory of their scrimping-and-saving efforts rather than pelted with non-recyclable plastic bottle caps by jealous naysayers.

Please take a look at this article and share your perspective on this odd phenomenon: http://www.greenwala.com/profiles/517-Elizah-Leigh/blog/1605-Viva-La-Eco-Cheapola

In Portland, OR they used to have a TV show about being cheap. Good for laughs and occasionally a good idea came up.

I was corrected one time that the word was not cheap but 'fiscal conservative'.

I agree with the author of the article, my parents were the exact same way because they had to make ends meet, not because they were thinking "green". For example, they have no problem spraying a cockroach with Raid 3 feet from where they are eating and continue like nothing happened (I had a fit with this over the summer! somehow the concept of poisoning doesn't get through to them).
