“Billion Dreams. One Planet. Consume with Care,” This is the theme for World Environmental Day 2015.
Mahatma Ghandi said, “A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.” And so I question the choice of the word “consume” as part of the theme. Making it careful consumption does not make it better, just like taking a life in a humane manner does not change the fact that a life is being taken. It is an extreme example, a provocative one, I know. Spend some time thinking about what “consume” means and what it is associated with and let me know.
