Sliding Scale Practices at MXED GREENS
We believe that herbal medicine should be available to everyone. Please select the tier of pricing which reflects what you need and where you are at <3 If you're new to sliding scale or aren't sure where you land, please read the following: (adapted from Alexis of Worts & Cunning (www.wortsandcunning.com) who has made some really excellent resources about sliding scale)
- The highest cost reflects a pay-it-forward price of a product or service. This tier generally applies to you if you are comfortably able to meet all of your basic needs, have access to financial security or financial savings, own property, have regular access to healthcare, have expendable income or can buy new items, can afford to take time off from work or take vacations. You have economic power and privilege in our community, and can use that to pay a slightly higher cost so that products and services remain sustainable for us to create, and accessible for everyone to receive.
- The middle cost(s) is for those who find themselves reflected in neither descriptions for the highest cost or the lowest. This might looks like working to pay off debt/build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living, but having access to steady income and not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc. This is generally the cost that would be charged in the absence of a sliding scale.
- The bottom cost acknowledges that systems of oppression create economic circumstances that prevent people from accessing care/services. If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, this tier is for you. Your financial contribution is equally and gratefully received.
Please remember that a sliding scale is grounded in trust; you choose what is right for you, no questions asked. Talking about, and investigation relationships to money is hard; but it's a conversation and inquiry that we feel is a crucial piece in community resiliency and accountability.
