I envision a world where there is a decrease in consumption, where people value and buy products that are durable and long-lasting and similarly companies design and produce high-quality products. Due to the high costs of such items, the government will also financially assist those who are not able to afford these products.
We still likely have a long way to go, but we can continue to raise more awareness of sustainability issues and help people understand that they can make a difference, hopefully speeding up the process. It is well-known industries are one of the biggest contributors to negative environmental impacts, often leading people to believe they will not be able to make significant positive change. However, if enough people decrease their consumption, the fewer materials that will have to be used, the fewer factories that will be necessary to produce goods, and therefore there will be a reduction in the pollution and negative impact on the environment.
Hello Jinny! I think it's a great idea for the government to help those out who need the support since more sustainable, high quality items will inevitably cost more.
Well put Jinny! I especially like that you are looking out for people who can't afford higher quality products! I think this has huge implications that we as a society haven't considered yet.
Hi Jinny! I love that you mentioned the rising prices that accompany high quality and sustainable products. I agree that there should be some sort of government assistance with these as well for people unable to afford them.
Yes 100% that our consumption has led to an increase of material usage
Hi Jinny, you mentioned some ideas towards positive side for our future development and I really appreciate them!Overproduction and consumption adds some carbon emissions and doesn't bring a lot of real meaning.
Hi Jinny! I'm glad you brought up bringing awareness first. We can make plans for change all we want but bringing awareness to a topic is the first step towards change and is so important.
Thank you for sharing Jinny! I agree that we need to raise more awareness of sustainability issues. A good way to raise more awareness is to volunteer for climate change events and encourage others to do so! I think education is a key part of starting a movement, taking small action such as speaking to your neighbours, and co-workers about these issues would spread the word quickly.
