Question Consumption

Before you begin browsing our eco-products pages, it should be noted that consumption is not the solution to our problems-it is the problem. Throwing out all of your old things, and buying a house full of eco-products to replace them is a very bad idea-it would clog up our already taxed landfills, and deplete the earth's resources even more. As you browse these pages, remember that the most sustainable product is the one that is never made.

However, Lotus Live understands that we all do have needs, and depending on our choices, these needs can have very grave, or nearly negligible effects on the earth. Without a doubt, the first thing to do is question your consumption. But when you do have a need, the Lotus Live Eco-Products pages are here to provide you with the most up to date, unbiased recommendations for the products that will allow you to tread as lightly as possible on the earth. Responsible consumption will not save the world, but the world cannot be saved unless we shop more responsibly.

For more information about reducing our consumption, see the Simplicity Forum.
