While it appears that the basic concept of Thanksgiving as a time for 
showing appreciation as a people for the astonishing amount of stuff 
we in this nation have ready, easy access to, occasionally there are 
efforts to make us think about something more than eating.  Below is a 
tool that may help combine those inclinations -- this is a web tool to 
help people around the country figure out places near them or on the 
web to acquire healthy, environmentally raised products, such as 
turkeys.  
Since living more within the environment's means is a critical part of 
the process of improving the environment, AND because seeking out and 
supporting environmentally sound products is a POLITICAL statement 
about your values, as well as the most powerful message you can send 
with your dollars, this seems a very important tool to share with 
Michigan enviros.  May all of you, sustainable or not, have a 
wonderful Thanksgiving -- AW

Thanksgiving is coming and it's time for a healthy serving of 
sustainably-raised turkey. Grocery stores and farmer's markets near 
you are now selling meat products that are raised without the use of 
antibiotics, in ways that are better for the environment and public 
health. Visit http://www.eatwellguide.com where you can type in your 
zipcode and find your local suppliers of sustainably-raised turkey, 
meat, and dairy products.
