Consumption is a big part of our lives. While there are many organizations and companies to serve our needs, there are some who serve both our needs while doing what is best for the environment and the manufacturer. Some of the issues behind consumption leave devastating results not only to the environment, but to the poor and vulnerable people around the world who are fulfilling the demands. For example, approximately a quarter of a BILLION people are under forced labor worldwide.
When a product is ethically sourced, it means that during the process of manufacturing, the item is obtained with responsibility, in ethical and sustainable ways. When a product is sourced or supplied this way, it has limited environmental impact and protects the well-being of workers. This ensures that products have little or no significant negative impact on society and the environment. Ethically sourcing not only protects the environment and society, but the members of the organization as well.
Understanding the different ways companies can contribute to our society is a big step in making companies a responsible supplier as well as us being as a responsible consumer. As time moves forward, consumers are more understanding of the impact on our Earth and seeking means to make an impact. One important impact is purchasing products from companies that ethically source. This means that companies can increase their sales while protecting the environment and people. Let us all continue to work together for a better society for ourselves and future generations.
