WHAT TO BUY
Unfortunately exploitation finds its way into not only food and clothing, but also in other items that we buy and use in our lives. Examples include cosmetics, cleaning products, electronics, and even tires. It truly is sad that we as a society have let industrialization take over our morality, and it can get quite depressing once you realize how deep the problems run. Before you start crying, however, remember that you cannot nor will ever be perfect, and shouldn’t beat yourself over it. Perfection is a subjective term, so by definition no one is perfect. What matters is that you always act to the best of your ability to cause the minimum amount of harm to your fellow earthlings.
You're not alone in your realizations, and there are ways to live consciously in a consumerist society.
