Conscious Consumerism Is Not Enough. What Are You Really Doing to Change the World?

Lately, I've been telling anyone who will listen my thoughts on the effectiveness of obsessing over individual lifestyle choices. I've summarized them this morning for Quartz, a smart publication by The Atlantic. This post, a continuation of my popular post from last year called "The Big Lie of Conscious Consumerism" may seem like a disavowal of the very core of what EcoCult is about. OK, it kind of is. But I can tell you that I will still provide you content and information on how to personally make better decisions that are in line with your values. However, I will also be sharing with you ways you can take action to support policy decisions and systemic change. So: buy this non-toxic skincare, but also donate to the Environmental Working Group. Or: Offset the carbon from your flight, but also attend a town hall meeting to ask your representative about climate change. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
