An informed consumer is a powerful consumer
Consumer Rights Day is celebrated so that people assume a leading role in defending their rights and demand quality products that do not harm health and the environment.
- The single-use product’s labeling considers that consumers have the right to know where the products they are consuming come from as precisely as possible.
- The UN has one of its most prominent objectives in consumption, as it seeks a transition towards responsible consumption by promoting sustainable management and the efficient use of resources, reducing waste and food waste.
- Knowing the rights that protect consumers is essential to exercise and defend them. The best way to protect them is to keep them in mind before purchasing or hiring a service.
- Responsible consumption is necessary to have a one hundred percent sustainable planet that isn’t detrimental to the environment and has a better quality of life.
- Despite being one of our basic needs, where it is necessary to acquire food, clothing, education, health and other benefits, we must learn and rationalize our natural resources.
- According to figures established by the UN, only 20% of the population consumes 80% of the resources on the entire planet.
- In this sense, a change of consciousness is urgently needed in society if we want to continue enjoying sustainable economic, social and environmental development in the long term.
