I envision a future where "required" consumption is changed.
We need to shift our mindset when purchasing something. The items we consume and purchase shouldn't be for a social status or any other signaling.
In my future I envision, myself and my peers will not be influenced by manufacturers to buy things we don't need. A place where we are not required to buy anything, just what we need for our own lives. Part of this is a more educated consumer who has their own personal views in the forefront of what they need to purchase and not the ideas of a corporation.
Another part of this shift in mindset should have people finding more happiness from time spent with individuals than objects with big price tags. Finding such happiness from objects is fleeting and will only contribute to the climate crisis. I will not purchase items on the fly and think about what I need for my own lifestyle before purchasing something to ensure im not persuaded by anyone but myself.
