You're thinking of Mother Earth.Another Hawthorne owned company. Are you a Hagedorn shill or what?
And if you're going to make a post you should check to make sure that what you're posting is accurate.
Down To Earth™ began in Eugene, Oregon, in 1977 in response to the growing segment of American consumers who were looking for alternatives to plastic and synthetic materials.
I'm not concerned with a majority of these so called local shops that are shipping product worldwide. And I bet if you go to your local shop they'll be selling GH, Botanicare, and other products from the Big Bad Wolf. Why are you not ranting about those local shops that carry all these products that you find so abhorrent? They sell them because they make a profit. They could care less about some inconsequential distant tie they might have with the Bayer company.Do you understand the fall out effects of supporting a company like Hawthorne?
These wankers will supply Walmart with cheaper bulk hydroponics and the local stores won't be able to compete. Then you lose market diversity which drives innovation and supports local economies.
As far as market diversity, if you're talking about all the overpriced bottled water companies targeting cannabis growers they are not needed. A different label, different name, ingredients all from the same factories owned by big ag.
You sound like the guy that just hates a company like Bayer/Monsanto because you think they're damaging the planet. And you might be right. But at the same time do you drive a car and use gasoline? Turn on lights in your house? If you do any of those things then your paying companies that are damaging the planet for their products.
