What we Purchase Our modern throw-away culture has created an environmental disaster. We urge a complete rethink of our collective purchasing and consumption habits. Collectively our purchase and consumer habits have created an environmental disaster. Whether food waste, single use packaging, fast fashion, or unfixable electrical goods, we need an urgent rethink as a society. We need to stop mindlessly consuming our way through life. We need to start consuming based on what we actually need not just what we want. We must build an awareness of the environmental consequences of our lifestyles and drive collective change. We must question every purchase we make through an environmental lens so that we engage in the most effective means of disposal. We have to conserve our resources as if they were finite... because they are! Changing the way we eat is an important aspect of limiting our carbon footprint.
