I envision a future where people feel more connected to each other because we become less influenced by marketing and more influenced by our own visions of sustainable and fulfilling lives. I value a world that is more thoughtful -- a world that continuously draws connections between consumption habits and the impact those habits have on ecosystems and people across the globe. To achieve this future of equity and responsibility we should ban the practice of planned obsolescence, provide subsidies for appliance repairs, and apply greater taxes on items that are produced unethically. I will take steps today towards this less-consumeristic future by committing to not buy any new clothing for the rest of this year.
