Forest Conservation = Reduced Consumption
In an extremely insightful editorial piece, noted ecologist David Suzuki traces
the implications of the consumer society, stating that the “Consumer culture
is no accident“. The endless need for increased consumer satisfaction that
underpins modern economies is certainly detrimental to environmental
sustainability and the well-being of forest systems. The future of humanity's
family depends upon consuming less, living frugally, favoring quality over
quantity and finding meaning in more than having more things.
