When I saw that Bend Living had released its first "green issue" last month, I must say I found a great deal of irony. When you have a magazine that mainly deals with a) the burgeoning resort communities that cut down our beautiful landscapes, b) small boutique stores downtown that ship in their overpriced imported goods from who knows where, c) advertisements for seven local car dealerships, and d) generally, in my opinion, encourages unnecessary, excessive consumerism, you have to chuckle a little when they release a green issue on more than 150 pages of thick, glossy paper.

 

I appreciate their thought, as the intention is one that I fully agree with, but it would be nice if they would have started out using their conscience, instead of just recently dusting it off because it's popular right now. Nice try, Bend Living, but I'm not buying it
