Whole Foods mixed message

Pink salt from the Himalayas. Millions of years old and harvested for
Whole Foods customers to the tune of about $16 per pound.

This is an example of a dilemma faced by Eco-tourists - they love
nature and want to preserve it, but they also want to hike in it and
enjoy it. But sometimes it's not possible to do both.

It's interesting to me that the same person who insists on organic
foods, recycled toilet paper and fuel efficient cars would buy
something so incredibly unsustainable as salt taken from the tallest
oldest mountains in the world.
