What’s a Compassionate Consumer?

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Robert F. Kennedy, South Africa, 1966

We started this series to help understand why consumers exhibit the behaviours they do, what the impact is on local, national and global communities, and what might be considered right action.
