If the price of our food reflected the environmental, social and health costs of food production…we’d pay a lot more for it. The Price Tags/Cost Tags describe many of the hidden costs of commonly eaten foods and encourage eaters to seek out more sustainable alternatives.
Perfect for direct marketing enterprises, food co-ops and CSA bags, the series includes cost tags ranging from hamburgers to apples to beer.

A companion piece, the Power Eater’s Guide to Organic and Sustainable Food, provides background information on sustainable eating.
The Price Tags/Cost Tags and Power Eater’s Guide are saved as PDF files. Once downloaded, they can be photocopied onto heavy paper or cardstock for distribution. Note that there are two tags per page, and they need to be cut in half (each tag is 4.25″ wide x 11″ tall). Please feel free to copy and distribute them freely!
The Price Tags/Cost Tags were developed with support from the College of Agriculture, Food, and Environmental Sciences at UW-River Falls and the Food Routes Network.
