How Will Purchasing Socially Conscious Products Help?
Fair trade and fair labor principles are one of the cornerstones of socially conscious manufacturing. By treating workers with respect and dignity the overall product will thrive and the consumer, like you, will become part of a cyclical positive energy which inevitably enhances society as a whole. Fair trade, for instance, releases many organizations from the clutches of the cold corporate hamster wheel and instead raises them and their workers to a higher level. It ensures that pay is distributed fairly, working conditions created soundly and manufacturing education is implemented to disadvantaged communities. It enables companies to take advantage of the lightning speed of free enterprise without being taken advantage of. There are also cruelty free products make certain no animals (or humans) were harmed or maimed during safety testing. These are yet another small step toward a less violent, more enlightened community.
How Can Socially Conscious Purchases Affect the Future?
Purchasing socially conscious products sends a wakeup call to corporations that are not adhering to humane business practices. As in the case of certain sneaker companies allowing for abuse and prejudice in the workplace, including gross neglect of child welfare. They were put on notice by consumers banding together to boycott their product and the result was to clean up their act or go out of business. This is the future of demanding socially conscious production rather than dumping every last dollar into a bottom line. Maintaining CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) as well as SSR (Student Social Responsibility) a world of eco-friendly, socially conscious products just may be around the corner.
