The role of the media in driving sustainability
Consumer demand has driven market forces in most sectors into direct conflict with the wellbeing of our natural recourses. Appeal, price and convenience are the factors that have become pervasive in consumer choices and this has lead to the exploitation of resources that do have a high dollar based price tag on them, such as energy, water, air, dump sites, and plant and animal species, and now these most basic resources that we all need to survive are under threat.
In the process of servicing our demand, a demand that does not place a high degree of value on our natural resources, supply chains and processes are often wasteful and harmful towards these resources.
Why did we create this unsustainable situation? We did it inadvertently. If we knew all the facts about everything we purchased and we able to compare appeal, price, convenience and environmental impact, we would make the greener choices and the market forces would respond to this and adapt production accordingly.
This is the role of the media, of www.mygreenchoices.co.za – to provide some insight into the environmental impact of the consumer choices we make every day.
As part of the market media companies are business and Alive2green cc is no different. Our business model sees us earning a margin between income from sponsorships and advertising, and the costs of producing and publishing www.mygreenchoices.co.za.
