How to Be More than a Mindful Consumer

I’ve also written about the idea that shopping will not solve all of our problems. Great article by Annie Leonard on the same idea.

The problems surrounding the trip from the cotton field to the sweatshop are just a smattering of the ills that not only result from the take-make-waste economy but make it possible. That’s why striving to make responsible choices at the individual consumer level, while good, is just not enough. Change on the scale required by the severity of today’s planetary and social crises requires a broader vision and a plan for addressing the root causes of the problem.
