In partnership with the Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles (SEE-LA), this program addresses whether preserving the environment is a luxury or a necessity in hard times. Women often make the budget decisions about what and where food for the family is purchased, and this program addresses questions that focus on what the real costs of our environmental decisions are.
