Empowering Your Conscious Consumer

conscious_consumer_250Conscious Consumers want to hear solutions to problems, not more bad news and scary stories. They want alternatives of what they can do instead.

That gives them the power that goes with being a Conscious Consumer. Conscious Consumers understand they have the opportunity to make choices about what they buy, when they buy and from whom they buy. They understand that collectively, their choices determine the success or failure of products, corporations and industries. Conscious Consumers recognize that they affect the decisions and actions of both corporations and governments. Along with power, comes responsibility.

Dayle presents clear and concrete examples of simple things that your group can do to make choices that become good habits. It is the little things that add up for each of us and for our family and for the planet.

Once you are a conscious consumer, you will never go back!
