In this blog, I want to take the idea of ‘eco-conscious use of resources’ further…
By this idea, I mean that while we continue to reap the convenience of latest technologies and products, we give a periodic check to our consumption pattern – Are we using one resource/product way too much? Is that product/resource environmentally sensitive like plastics, water, paper, electronic items, electricity, petrol as fuel…?
If we feel we are (as reflected in our family/corporate budget or just an intuition), next thought can be ‘Can we rationalize the use of that product/resource’?
We DO make such assessments whenever a consumption pattern burns a hole in our pocket.
Costs of certain consumption patterns are not apparent today, but does that mean ‘they do not exist’?
And if there are such seriously high costs, would we still continue with the same old consumption pattern?
Hope this sets us thinking. More on ‘Costs of certain consumption patterns’ in the coming blogs…
Thanks for reading!
