”Through Crises Toward Transformation: Systemic Solutions - Consumerism!"
When: Sunday, September 19, 2021, 2:00 pm-3:30 pm PDT (3 pm MT, 4 pm CT, 5 pm ET)
Where: Online Ministry
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.
