Many health and environmental issues are caused by our consumption. This is often due to a lack of awareness and information. The transparency with regards to ingredients, and the production of food and cosmetics is minimal. Micro-plastics and hormonal agents are often lurking in products that we use daily – with well-known, sometimes devastating effects on the environment and our health. Civilization diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or certain types of cancer or environmental problems such as ocean plastic, CO2 emissions, and deforestation can be reduced by more conscious shopping decisions.
