There’s a person behind every product.
Every product represents human capital: time, labor, effort, energy.
Every time you’re considering buying something new, ask yourself:
Do I really want a person to spend a portion of their lives making this for me?
Sometimes the answer is “yes”, but I would venture to guess much of the time the answer should be no.
Considering the people behind the things we buy, helps us make better (and more ethical) purchase decisions.
