Should I Buy That?

January 7, 2011

We all have questions we ask ourselves when considering purchases. Can I afford this? Will my butt look good in these? Should I get this color or that color? Will I feel bloated after I eat this? We also have impulsive moments where we don’t ask any questions, and, at least in my experience, those purchases usually end in regret.

So we should probably stick to asking questions, but what if we ask ourselves some different questions. Our purchases affect our communities, they affect the environment, they affect our families, they affect individuals on the other side of the globe. And knowing these things, purchasing anything at all can be very overwhelming. Check out this article from Mother Nature Network. It offers some questions you might ask before checking to see if your butt looks good in those jeans.
