On Environmentalism Becoming Consumerism
JULY 30, 2013
For years, I have called myself an “environmentalist” in that I care about the state of the environment and its affect on the human species. Most of the time I never really think about it, it’s just the word I use to describe myself when discussing my interests. But lately, this word is thrown around without much concern over how it is used, and some version of it is showing up in the advertising and marketing of goods and services that are actually anything but “environmental.”.
