We live in a culture dominated by consumerism. The media, the economists, the corporate world – all pressure us to buy, buy, buy! As a society, we are addicted to shopping and consumerism. And most of the industrial complex that makes and distributes consumer goods rely on fossil fuels, petroleum products and plastics that continually add to the carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
Last June, we explored the possibility of a circular economy, where “Take, Make, and Discard” is replaced with “Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose, and Repair.” But that’s only a portion of the solution. Wise consumer practices for the individual and for manufacturers are other transformations required to help solve this systemic problem.
Come join us in the Climate Webinar on September 19 as we explore lifestyle changes and corporate changes necessary to help mitigate climate change. Invite your friends to join as well. All sessions are free. Participation in previous webinars and conversations is not necessary to join in this opportunity.
