Stocking The Shelves: Adria Vasil On Effective Consumer Complaints [VIDEO]
Despite the fact that all of us probably have, at one time, been dissatisfied with the selection at our local store, it's not very often that we speak up about it. "People don't want to seem like they're just whining," Vasil said. However, she explained that it isn't really whining or complaining if you are just having an honest conversation about why there isn't any in-season fruit on the shelves, for example. After speaking with local grocery managers herself, she was told that a few people speaking up are what makes changes on the shelves. It only takes a few, she said, because to a store owner, "[those few] represent a hundred people that are thinking it but not doing it."
With a strong desire to make healthier and more environmentally friendly choices in life, it makes sense that Vasil would ask her local stores do the same. She speaks to the importance of community, explaining that we are all working and living together, and that making better choices is a group effort. In her talks, she stresses the importance of detoxifying our lives—but does so without preaching. Her writing and media appearances come highly recommended, and her advice has won her not just critical acclaim, but also the trust and respect of her audiences.
