Recording: Climate Crisis vs. Consumer Culture: How We Shift, Mar 10, 2023

Amid a global climate crisis, the culture of consumerism is exploding. Over 59 million packages were delivered each day in the U.S. alone in 2021, indicating that pandemic purchasing habits are here to stay. But, at a time when we need to do everything in our power to decrease our carbon footprint, the climate impact of same-day delivery and pay-over-time shopping hauls is astronomical. From material sourcing to package waste and carbon emissions of delivery, corporate practices are increasingly under the microscope as sustainability takes the forefront. Join us to discuss why we must and how we can shift thinking and embrace a new era of sustainability in commerce.
