George Monbiot’s Perspective About Green Consumerism

By Erik Folgate

Check out this article on consumerist.com about an interview with George Monbiot’s perspective on ethical shopping.

I think he hits the nail on the head and he says that trendy “green” consumerism is doing nothing more than dividing shopping into ethical products and unethical products, but it doesn’t actually do anything to help the environment. Doesn’t it seem like so much activism these days comes down to what he is saying? It ends up being more about the political statement rather than the actual cause.
