Went with my younger son and his girlfriend to our regional centre. We were wandering around in Kmart and they went off while I went to the home wares section. I grabbed a toasted sandwich maker for our campervan. When I re-united with the kids I said 'guess how much this is?', holding up the sandwich maker. 'Twenty bucks' son ventures. 'Eight dollars', I reply. He is totally shocked at the low price. 'That actually makes me feel sick' he says. I put the sandwich maker down on a stool near the shoes aisles and we leave. What is the real environmental and humanitarian cost of an $8 sandwich maker?
