I wanted to talk to you about the importance of conscious consumer for a while. Now, when we can buy whatever we want quite easy because of the internet and worldwide shipping, it’s important to be responsible for our actions and be conscious consumers.
Being a conscious consumer means that before buying anything, you think about yourself and environment. You need to care what impact it does to you and the world around you. Is it good to your health, lifestyle and wellbeing? Is it environmentally friendly and has a positive social impact? You might wonder, what particularly I have in mind. Well, take an apple as an example. When you can choose between two apples, one which is more expensive than another, maybe it doesn’t look like the most beautiful apple you’ve ever seen but you know it was grown naturally, in a local farm, where
You’re responsible for your wellness and the world around you.
You might wonder, what particularly I have in mind. Well, take an apple as an example. When you can choose between two apples, one which is more expensive than another, maybe it doesn’t look like the most beautiful apple you’ve ever seen but you know it was grown naturally without chemicals, in a local farm, where people were paid a fair price for their jobs. Plus, it’s not packed in plastic. And here’s another apple, quite cheap, perfectly looking and packed in plastic. Which one would you choose? If you care about yourself and the world around you, you will choose the firsts one.
Only What You Need
Our eyes always want more things than we really need. But before buying it all you must ask yourself, do I truly need it? Of course, there’re so many incredible things out there, whether we’re talking about food, clothes, digits, home elements or anything else. Our minds can want it all! But you need to stay conscious, the more things you have, the more of them you want to throw away, even when the old item is still good. You need to think carefully before getting anything and choose only what you need.
Do No Harm
Also, being a conscious consumer means that you must do no harm nor for yourself, nor for others. Most of the time this also means that you need to choose quality over quantity. It is your duty to find out about the impact of each item you’re about to buy. Of course, it takes a lot of time and efforts but it’s worth it! Don’t you want to use only natural skincare, eat healthy food and wear ethically made clothes? Don’t you want to reduce pollution, fight global warming and support small-scale entrepreneurs?
Being a conscious consumer means you care not only about your basic needs but also about the quality of your life and understand the consequences of your actions. Gladly, there are more and more conscious consumers out there and together we definitely can make a change.
