Green Technology And Making Each Purchase Count
Green technology is more than just how a building is made or what kind of energy you use for your utilities. These are absolutely important, but I would like to look at an equally important eco-friendly and green factor. Furthermore, one that goes into the everyday and practical functioning of a person’s life. In a sense, using your green to buy green. What I mean exactly is how you can spend every dollar you make to make a green impact and environmentally conscious decision on your daily and weekly purchases.
Making every dollar count at the grocery store, the pharmacy, clothing store, and entertainment shop are all important factors where you could go green and play a greater role at reducing your carbon footprint as well as shopping in an eco-friendly atmosphere and mind set. You can choose to buy government approved products that are fair trade as well as organic and local and certified green. From your trash bags, to household materials, food you consume and bath and shower products, you can make sure it is a green purchase. This not only reduces the carbon emissions but supports farmers and people who are spreading the green voice and eco-friendly initiative around the world. Going green is more than a lifestyle choice it is a way to make an agenda of ecological and economic importance a major priority on a micro and macro scale.
The ability to choose an ecologically made product over another is a major decision in one’s life. By doing this you are making the world a better place to live in. You can also encourage other people to do so and inspire your friends, neighbors and family to try it out. At the end of the day you are spending your money and that money goes to corporations and businesses of many different kinds. Wouldn’t it be better and wiser to funnel the money to businesses that are being effective, ecologically conscientious and smart with their services and products?
Furthermore, don’t you think it is a better idea to support a local farm than to support a factory that slaughters animals and does not care about humane animal decency? You can make a change by realizing from the food your eat to the products you put on your skin play a major role on the developmental to the economic level of buying those goods. The greatest gift of all is the ability to think higher than what you see on television or advertisements that make things that are harmful like tobacco and fast food a brainless operation for consumers to buy because it is cheap. Cheap does not mean healthy and cheap is not necessarily green. Green means being well educated and prepared to make an impact and positive change on the world you live in and the world you leave behind for the next generation. The choice is a clear one that you can make and abide by.
