In today's Earth Week discussion we will talk about fast fashion, consumerism, how our every day choices can make an impact on the world and women's lives.
Thank you for being here with me on Day 3. You guys blew me away again yesterday with your inspired action and engagement in this challenge. I feel so blessed, I feel like I'm literally surrounded by the most amazing beings. (because I am!) If you haven't checked in on Day One or Two yet, please head over and introduce yourself to the group and let us know your takeaways!
Today's topic is all about consumerism. This is a big topic and a big problem.
Who all has been a shopaholic in the past?
I don't even think I identified as having a shopping problem because it was just so normalized. I would even spend money I didn't technically have when I first had things like OSAP and credit cards. I feel like society has done us a disservice in allowing essentially children access to these things without understanding the implications. Anywho...
What is your takeaway from day three?
What have you been implementing or what are you excited to try? What on your favourite resources or conscious brands that you'd like to share? What are your thoughts on minimalism? I'd love to use this page a place that we can all come back to for a wealth of resources on all things conscious consumerism OR how to consume less/minimalism.
