Watch How This Supermarket Got People To Buy Their Trash

This is so cool. I hate that only the perfect looking fruits and veggies are allowed at most grocery stores. Such a waste.

You just have to do what makes you happy, because youโ€™ll never get a unanimous vote. People like to gossip. They bond over it. They donโ€™t bond over complimenting famous people. Iโ€™m always the first person to defend Gwyneth Paltrow. Or any woman in a position of power, like Martha Stewart or Oprah, who gets burned. Because they have paved the path for so many other women who are doing something they believe in.
