I believe that less stuff brings more happiness. Minimalism in many aspects can help to have more meaningful time for more meaningful relationships, be less distracted to actually live your life and experience nature.
I envision a world where people consider every consumption based on their real needs, which overall leads to a world with less waste and pollution from industry production. But more importantly, the government or the economy system should have more management on industrial production so that things that are available to the public can actually last long and generate less waste. Nowadays most people would still buy fast fashion clothing as it is more affordable, so the management in production would play a significant role to provide more affordable and also more long-lasting products to the market. That way I believe people would be more willing to buy environmental friendly products. Otherwise, like what we have mentioned in the first class, it would be too much responsibility for individuals on environment protection.
I hope people as well the government can mind the concept of sustainability and believe that every action in our lives does matter. I want to start the movement by stopping buying fast fashion products and also spreading the idea to people around me. At the same time, as I am living on campus, I noticed that there are many donation boxes around residence area for us to put items that we no longer need. I thought it is also a good way to produce less waste. I hope more people will donate instead of just throwing aways thing, and also that more donation boxed can appear in communities.
