How to spot greenwashing, stop consuming and demand a more sustainable future.
Climate change is now a mainstream conversation topic, beyond the echo chamber of concerned environmentalists. And yet every week our recycling piles are still overflowing, we're faced with another brand trying to persuade us to buy their eco-friendly product and we're individually having to spend time and effort trying to make the right choices to live sustainably.
For too long, corporations have shifted the eco-responsibility onto us, the consumers. Now it's time to push back and demand change.
In Buyer Beware, founder of #EthicalHour, Sian Conway-Wood, provides practical tips on how to stop consuming, advice on how to see through corporations' greenwashing, and steps to hold them accountable. In doing so we can create demand for sustainability in supply chains, and put pressure on decision-makers to implement systemic change that puts people and the planet above profit.
