The California earthquake felt Sunday measures 6.0 on the Richter scale, the strongest in the last 25 years.  It leaves a number of houses on fire, several establishment destroyed or damaged including a number of historical buildings.  This California earthquake definitely shakes the people in the area badly hit.

Empower Network - Consumer Today and How it Affects the Artisans

Empower Network - Consumer Today and How it Affects the Artisans | Global Community | Scoop.it

We are so used to being the consumer that we are that we seldom consider the cost of a product beyond its price tag, oftentimes we're thinking the cheaper, the better.  Personally, I believe that consumer responsibility is more than just knowing our rights as a consumer; we have to take it upon ourselves, too, to know what else costs a product.

Lisa Burnham's insight:

We can all improve our economy, enrich communities and protect the environment through our conscious effort to become a better consumer.

Lisa Burnham's insight:

It’s true that the world continues to change and will continue evolving, but the way we callously living on this planet is a big contributing factor in accelerating these changes in ways that are putting so many lives in peril.

What you may be doing (or not doing) right now may seem like a small fraction considering the current state of our environment but remember that big changes starts from small actions.  A movement comes from the collective effort to create such changes.
