Yes expense. Organics do tend cost a bit more. How can this be a reason to “Go Organic?” Companies and businesses that promote “conventional” food, cleaning supplies, pesticides and fertilizer make their profits betting that people like you and me are more interested in saving money than saving ourselves, and the environment.

When this happens, with the power of competition, prices will go down.
