Taking Small Steps Towards Conscious Consumerism
Conscious consumerism, a bit of an ethical conundrum isn’t it?
On one hand, consuming less or nothing at all is really what’s best to repair the damage we’ve done to our fragile planet. On the other hand, unless you’re a bush dwelling nudist living solely off the land, you’re going to consume “stuff” every day, almost unconsciously.
So what do we do?
We need to change the way we choose the things we buy, just as we have changed the way we choose the food we consume. The shift towards eating real food almost had it easy in terms of change – humans intrinsically know that we get out of our bodies what we put in, and putting in good stuff is simply better for you. We can see the difference it makes.
It’s not so easy when it comes to things.
