Food for thought

Next time you’re out shopping and you are just about to make a purchase, stop and ask yourself these questions:

·How has this product been produced and what is the impact that this has on the environment and on others?
·Who influences our consumer choices, and who has control over how and why things are produced?
·Is this a necessity or a luxury?
·How much of what we consume is influenced by the needs of businesses and advertisers versus our needs?
·How do the demands of wealthier nations/people impact on the poor?
·How do material values influence our personal values as well as our relationships with other people?
