ABSTRACT
This article presents information on various articles published in the October 2005 issue of the journal "ECOS." This issue's focus is on organic foods. Buying organic products is currently a financial commitment beyond what might be expected in some cases there's more than an 80 per cent price premium on organic products. Buying decisions of many organic purchasers have an inherent value of greener practices and more chemically benign eating, as well as the cost weight of low supply volumes in a boutique industry. The organic sections of the local superstores are extremely limited, to say the least. Being a fully committed organic buyer today means separate trips to dedicated organic produce shops, enough to put the general punter off, no doubt. The other Focus on pages 16-25 provides an overview of the significant steps being made in Australia and internationally to attach tradeable financial value to the services provided by the environment. Just ten years ago, the process of costing environmental services was radical and cutting edge.
