Ethical Consumption

By Ruth Messinger, Jordan Namerow

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2012

The authors, who work for the American Jewish World Service (AJWS), argue that ethical consumption is not only about being mindful of where we shop and what we ingest. It's also about reforming government policies that perpetuate a cycle of poverty and widen the gap between "too much" and "not enough," making ethical consumption nearly impossible for even the most conscientious among us.
