Since we were talking about our stuff and the effects that our choices have on others on Monday, (and thanks for all of your great comments!), for the question of the day today, I wanted to ask what you all do to be more conscious consumers.
For me, it can be really hard and overwhelming to be a conscious consumer in every area, but it is still something that is on my mind almost any time that I purchase something, whether food, clothing, or household items.
Where did this item come from? How was it made? Who is the company that is selling it? Is there a way I can find what I’m looking for and be a more conscious consumer and still not bust my budget?
So today I want to know:
What Does Conscious Consuming Mean To You?
How do you choose the things that you buy and where you buy them from?
Are there certain things you won’t buy because you can’t find a good source to buy them from?
How do you balance the necessity of buying things for your family while being conscious of the impact of your purchasing decisions?
I can’t wait to hear your answers!
