This is just an idea but…
I’ve been thinking, as I do…
and I had flash backs to all the comments in my life where people have said
Being more environmentally considerate isn’t economically sustainable.
Then I thought,
maybe they’re wrong.
Maybe they’re wrong because the argument I always seem to hear revolves around things like:
plastic is cheap
people do what they want
and countries in trade deals rely on the high yield exportation of their goods to other countries. That means production has to be fast and reliable, or work is lost.
I honestly believe though that the problem isn’t to do with the practicality,
but with the mindset.
No one ever really shares how we can fix the problem, it’s more common that someone argues against it
So I’m going to give an opinion, one that has no evidence or research behind it. To start the discussion from the otherside
If more companies were to invest in higher quality, environmentally sustainable items for their lines- the prices will indeed go up- and people wouldn’t like that.
This means that the company would invest more money on good materials, people would buy a higher quality product (that would last longer due to the quality.) Resulting in less enviromental waste and more economic long term benefits. Quality not quantity from both sides.
I dunno, it just seems weird that it seems to be “impossible,” to be both environmentally sustainable and economic
I’m not saying this an answer- it’s too bullshitty to be one, but I find the problem is that people aren’t expressing their views on how it CAN be changed. That’s where the problem is. A lot of people are scared and misinformed or passive on what makes a difference
When that happens it’s more likely to take the easy route, and buy what you’re told to buy. As opposed to looking up what YOU want, then researching it, then buying it
Life is about discussion and making your voice heard,
What are your thoughts?
Can we be environmentally sustainable and economically safe?
