Sustainability in Context: The Power of Purchase
Sustainability is shorthand for a complete moral system of cultural values, beliefs, and attitudes related to a sense of responsibility for the greater good. Sustainability continues to be a key consumer concern and aspiration. It touches on powerful ideals around honoring our connections with nature and one another. It speaks to the hopes—and fears—we have for the world we leave to generations that follow us. Consumers act on this concern in various spheres of their lives, and most factor sustainability into their purchase decisions at some point.
