Consumerism has led to the demise of our planet in unimaginable proportions. We do not see it yet. Animals and plant species are pulled into extinction everyday. We have polluted the air, the steams, lakes and river, even our oceans. Even the food we eat and the water we drink are either adulterated or contaminated. The more we consume, the more we pollute. Air pollution has spiked respiratory diseases Worldwide. Other diseases have followed our pollution trail. People have more attachment to loving products than to people.
The less we consume and the less we have to throw out, it will give our planet time to recuperate from the abuse we as humans have caused.
