Make 2021 the year of not buying something

Part of the problem of climate change, deforestation, species extinction is related to the amount we consume and currently business as usual merchants want us to continue spending and consuming. This isn’t possible on a finite planet and is morally wrong when we know of the exploitation of human labour and the environment. So how about making a list of things that you don’t buy this year, that you do without? If we all didn’t buy something it would make a big difference. I can see the problems for people. A younger me would also spend and spend again but I have become old enough to reject the advertising by what the marketing and advertising people tell me is essential for my life and happiness. So why not try and not go shopping whether it be physically when allowed to do so or on line? Make a note of items that you have decided not to buy and at the end of 2021 count up how much money you have saved. There are those that will say that these people in 3rd world countries need the work and while true they need more than economic slave wages and that needs to change too.

UK Economy Failing Whether in EU or Not

The Guardian reports that some more brands are going to the wall and some are blaming Brexit for their demise. The real reason for the demise is that the unsound economic and morally offensive consumption of fashion made by exploited foreign labour and bought on ever more extended credit is not sustainable financially or environmentally. With 300,000 tons of unwanted fashion going into landfill and contributing to the plastic contamination in the foodchains it is clear to see that this is not a long term financial model and is in itself morally bankrupt.
