When making purchasing decisions,
it is becoming apparent that many of us are beginning to take into
consideration the ethicality of what we are buying and how it is
produced. Spending ethically doesn’t have to be difficult, and it
doesn’t mean that you can’t save money while doing so. Our guest
today, Tanja Hester, knows this topic very well. Tanya is the
author of two award-winning books, Work
Optional and Wallet
Activism, and is best known for retiring from her career
at the age of 38. In this episode, she will be sharing several
things to think about next time you’re faced with a spending
decision to ensure you’re spending ethically.
Listen in as Tanja explains why you don’t have to be making a lot of money to purchase ethically sourced goods, as well as how to think about the consumerism problems. You will learn the flaws in how we currently think about activism, how to look into what you’re funding by purchasing from a specific company, and how to ensure you’re purchasing from businesses that actually stand by what they claim.
“There is this idea that you have to make a lot of money to be able to ethically spend, but I just really reject that idea.” - Tanja Hester
