Ending Consumerism

Green (Living) Review

We must stop worshiping at the altar of consumerism and greed by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The way that we, most of us, today are living is totally unsustainable. It is a way of life driven by advertising-generated wants that are mistaken, for we are being conditioned in such a way, as needs. Even our very governments urge us to consume more and more and at the onset of the recent recession we were “encouraged” to spend, spend, spend, in order to rekindle the faltering economy.
