Nowaday, the excessive consumptions caused by the desire of communication have led to serious environmental and social problem. So I'm going to talk about 'Sustainable Consumption' which can be a solution of the problems. Sustainable Consumption means a practical measure of sustainable development. To be ethical consumer realizing Sustainable Consumption, we have to do two things ; considering external effect that the consuming brings to the society and changing paradigm just pursuing economic growth and convenience. It might be heard an ideal story, but we have to practice it because the heart of economy is consumers themselves and yourself. I hope you to remind my lecture again and have a change of even very little action when shopping in a supermarket.
