Nature and the environment are our responsibility and we must take action

William Becker

Towards a planet-friendly lifestyle

Our consumption choices are powerful decisions that we make in our everyday life, but we might not see their consequences and
force. Our consumption choices shape markets and production patterns. They have tremendous impacts on our natural resources
and ecosystems as well as on our global community – contributing to issues such as climate change and human rights. It is through
our purchasing choices that we vote in the market, that we support or reject certain corporate practices. Through them we also send
messages to decision-makers in governments, industries and companies1.
