“No individual raindrop ever considers itself responsible for the flood.”

To finish off this Eco-friendly week I can only recommend a page that has tons of information on becoming a conscious consumer.That is a person who buys sustainable or recycled items and is usually concerned with the employee treatment and the greenness of a company and not just in purchasing an item. Now to live this way means that you as a consumer must do more research for the items you buy but more and more want to know what other costs make up the price of the product. Using computers as an example, not only the price to buy it and maintain it but to eventually get rid of it and what effect will it have on the environment. This site is simple and straight forward and is named, unsurprisingly, responsible consumption. Give it a try.
