Unnecessary deals part of the problem of overconsumption
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2013 -- Some readers may remember when Jerry Seinfeld stated: “The whole supermarket experience is designed to break down any sense of having life outside the supermarket. It’s like a casino: no clocks, no windows, no easily accessible exits. Do you ever not buy anything in the supermarket and try to get out of there? It’s impossible. There’s no way out. You can see what happens to people. When they’re walking up to the supermarket, they have a whole sense of purpose: I’m going to get this, I’m going to get that, I’m going to pay for it and go right back to my normal life. See that same person 10 minutes later (slow, dazed, looking around confusingly) What aisle is this?”
The general concept, supermarkets are consumer traps. They are designed with one idea in mind: to sell the highest amount of product possible.
Concepts like Buy one, get one free continue to lure individuals into taking more than they need for a perceived deal. Usually such deals are for non-perishable items, but often times consumers should likely reconsider even taking the second free item, as it is often simply not necessary.
When one is to shop, utilizing local farmer's markets is usually one of the better ideas. It is not simply for the 'vogue' hippie mentality that it provides, or the strangely communal atmosphere, but also the general promotion of local businesses and local people exclusively. It also helps to give individuals a sense of knowing exactly what it is he/she will be eating that day, that couple of days, or that week.
While not all may be pulverizers, eating the entirety of every consumable item, like the skin of a pineapple or every kiwi rind, it is best to buy foods that have as little throw away as possible. Use of compost to promote positive growth whilst reducing waste-for-naught is key. The best way to do that, is to also reduce overall consumption.
