Living Consciously Is An Everyday Consumer Decision

I was interviewed by Anusha Swetha of Vivamost about my advocacy for financial literacy and sustainable development. I got to discuss how I believe that your everyday transactions reflect your values. Sustainable living isn’t just about reducing waste and speaking out; it’s also about the kind of companies you support.

Your Purchase Decision Can Be About Making A Stand

Ordinary people like us might think that, alone, we can’t really have a big impact. We might think that we don’t have the power to create laws or the influence to sway policies that would make our world a better place. It also comes to a point where we feel insignificant, that our individual consumer choices just a drop of water in a very capitalist ocean.

I beg to differ. Every single product or service we choose to buy sends a message about the kind of commercial and corporate practices we support. Sustainable living is about making a conscious effort to know who makes our products and where they come from.

People around the world are more aware than ever of environmental concerns. To send stronger messages to companies that we care about the environment, we have to support companies that do, too.

Conscious living and sustainable consumerism aren’t just about buying “bio” and “eco-friendly” products. It’s also about making sure that the companies who make your products are dealing with ethical and sustainable business practices.

Live Consciously

You see, the sustainable lifestyle we choose is reflected in the products and services we support. It’s hard to make every choice 100% sustainable, but every little bit counts. Whenever you can, choose products and services that have more positive impact on our planet.  What’s important is that we live each day more consciously and conscientiously.

We have to realise that sustainability and sustainable development are multi-generational efforts. For our children to begin living a more sustainable lifestyle, we have to set good examples and engage them in a dialogue about conscious choices.

What smart choices will you choose to make today?
