Consumerism and environmental crisis

There is no longer any doubt that the planet is in a major environmental crisis and that the main cause is human activities.

El climate changeenergy crisis, natural disasters, pollution, extinction of animal and plant species, among others, show that humanity has not been managing or administering natural resources correctly for decades.

But the last 30 years has increased environmental problems by the global consumerism end which has been installed in almost all countries.

The era of plastic, disposable products, the constant renewal of technology, unsustainable production processes and waste of energy are some behaviors that accelerated the Environmental degradation locally and globally.

The exaggerated consumerism that exists in the world today has not produced benefits for the population, but rather great inequality between societies and enormous environmental degradation.

Currently there are movements and social groups that promote leaving extreme consumerism to move to a new era where it is consumed but with responsibility and environmental awareness. But also the production of products and services is environmentally sustainable.

We can all collaborate trying not to buy disposable products, but to recycle, reuse and give away products that we no longer use. In addition to reflecting before buying a product and choosing the one that is environmentally responsible since there are more and more ecological products on the market.

El rational usage of energy It is also essential, so it is necessary to reduce the consumption of electricity, but also of gas and other natural resources.

Consumerism has only benefited large corporations but has not improved people's lives or the environment.

In order to reverse the environmental crisis, the philosophy of consumerism must be abandoned and therefore the behaviors that promote it and practice it for others who are more concerned about individuals and the planet.
