Consumption + Alternatives

Does supply determine demand? Not necessarily. After all, we have the power to decide where to buy our products, what lands on our plates, what we consume every day. We have the power to withhold our purchases to encourage corporations to create sustainable, ethical products. We have more control over the markets than they give us credit for, all it takes is a bit of conscientious consumerism. There are countless alternatives to our shopping-crazed, throw-away society.

The films listed below all deal with the topic of consumerism and alternatives such as Do It Yourself, the sharing economy, or local currency. Discover an anti-consumerist, environmentally conscious lifestyle.

Editorial Responsibility on "Consumption + Alternatives"

Less is more. Actually the whole world. Or at least a tiny bit of it. I am Alessia. As I started to change my consumerism, I became a more conscious human. My discovery of Filme für die Erde supported me on it. That is why I would like to say thank you in that way I write about sustainable topics as my heading consumtion + alternatives. To effect something. Some people. Maybe you. And you.
