cheap option. Fuck "sustainable", it's a marketing scam anyway.

Surely you buy Sony for build as much as sound quality MLI?´You want your shit to last no? That’s always been the impression I got anyway. Surely built to last = sustainable.

Hey Leslie Nielson. I liked you in those movies.

My whole life is sustainable compared to those try hard show off pricks.

I want my shit to last yeah, so I don't have to buy it again. I hate fucking shopping. Turns out I'm poor but way more environmentally friendly than those fucking rich people with a prius. Never owned a car coz I'm fucking poor in the scheme. I don't give a shit about "global warming", it's a fucking lie, but I don't want to waste shit needlessly> I hate Ikea, H&M and all that disposable fucking shit. It's just wasteful.

But how the fuck is "organic coffee" less "sustainable" than nescafe?? It uses 5 times as much water and land coz they don't use pesticides, fuck that. It's a fucken scam aimed at dumb people.

I'm not claiming I'm a fucking genius, I just got more common sense than rich people who want to virtue signal. And I claim I actually care more about actual air quality and the environment than any one o those dumbass virtue signalling fuckers driving a Valkswagon.

I buy cage eggs coz I know freerange chickens are more susceptable to disease and injury. Virtue signallers smerk at me but I'm actually doing the right thing. Most people are dumbass uneducated sheep who have been taken in by Green propaganda instead of looking at actual facts.

By only buying MiUSA/JP products, being too broke to buy a car, never having kids and rarely leaving his hometown, Mil is probably the most sustainable of all of us.

Example if you're about to buy 1kg of peanut butter doing your online groceries, but it flags up saying it contains palm oil (also offers an explanation for why palm oil is bad) and offers a similar product that is sustainably sourced, zero palm oil etc but costs maybe £2 more. Would you choose it or would you ignore it?

We would include other visual guilt triggers like a scale from 1-10, red to green etc

In Ghana there hasn’t been an issue of the use with the locals, the issues have arisen due to the demand of the west and big corporations looking for cheaper alternatives.

I buy the £2 white tees and £2 pack of 5 black socks, guess I would be happy to add the extra 50p if it helped with sustainability, but I doubt it will change much at Primark

Those celeb climate change protesters got it in the neck for having a high carbon foot print.

Thats it, thats it. I never let wealthy fuckers lecture me on sustainability coz I'm way ahead of them in sustainability. but they want it that way, they want the glory of their climate crusade at the same time as taking credit for the progress, but actually they're just trying to force regular people like me down and to consume less, then they take the credit.

Fucking marxist global conspiracy. Fuck those guys. Fuck em all/kill em all.

^ good variety of colours there Laughing out loud

Was thinking of this thread yesterday as I found a BNWT pair of shorts that I forgotten I had bought as a back up for a favourite pair. Worked out well as had to bin the original pair last summer as got marks on them that wouldn’t wash out.

…you can’t work out whether to arrange your coats and jackets wardrobe by colour, thickness, style or some other criteria and it bothers you far more than it should.
