World Consumption or Environmental Day?

“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.
