Topic: Consumption

It’s everywhere. Consumption is almost impossible to avoid. It’s estimated that humans will consume more in the next 40 years than we have since we first stood on two legs. The more money we have the more we consume. The main issue is not consumption itself but it’s inequality and the impacts on our environment. The richest 20% of people account for 77% of private consumption, the middle 60% account for 22%, the poorest 20% account for just 1%. We can be smarter about what we consume and who consumes it. What are some ways we can start to do things differently?
