Hi Kate,

You have hit on so many pertinent issue in modern society, particularly relevant to the ‘developed north’. The level of waste is shocking, and this can be seen with the amount of space afforded to landfill dumps in Ireland. Fast, cheap consumerism has a huge impact on the environment and large companies have little incentive to change to more sustainable practices. The interconnected nature of the world that was discussed in module 1 seems to be forgotten when it comes to consumerism and meeting the needs of those in the developed world. It is going to require people shouting ‘Stop’ and voting with their feet in terms of purchasing these products.
