To be or not to be – a materialist ?

I have been a “good” and faithful consumer all my life however I have always liked to buy second-hand items from thrift shops and flea markets.  Buying in this way was not out of necessity but out of a desire to have a “unique” wardrobe and home !  It seems that consumerism as we have known it is changing, customers are demanding accountability from producers and shops as well as value for money.  This documentary did not give me any new insights,  it only reinforced my own,  that the only way to live happily and sustainable is to be a little frugal – slow consumerism ?

  1. Ja det är verkligen sant, att man har lyckats göra så mycket reklam att man som konsument tror man blir lyckligare av grejerna. Ska verkligen försöka dra ner på min konsumtion.
