Sheila and Maria dive into the topic of consumerism, to share their purchasing perspectives and suggest ways to bring consciousness to the decisions we make around consumerism, especially during the holidays.
"It is the logic of consumerism that undermines the values of loyalty and permanence and promotes a different set of values that is destructive of family life." - Christopher Lasch.
The choices we each make as consumers affect not only our daily lives and our wallets, but they also have a lasting impact on the environment, our children, and ourselves. If we desire to raise the next generation to be good custodians of mother earth, we need to make conscious daily choices that reflect those values we want to instill.
In this episode, we offer lots of ideas and resources to inspire you to keep your holiday traditions rich and exciting while minimizing the effects of consumerism. We want to excite and empower you to make mindful choices for your family during this holiday season and throughout the year.
