The supply chain crisis and buying less

The US newsportal Vox has published a piece on how consumers are nudged to order early for the holiday season in light of the disruption of global supply chains. It offers a different take and reframes the crisis as an opportunity to buy less. SuCo2’s Daniel Fischer features in the story.

Reducing one’s carbon footprint requires more frugal sacrifices than buying less stuff (such as flying less, eating less meat, using more public transportation), but it’s a good place to start. This holiday season offers a bizarre, supply-chain-induced opportunity to change our shopping habits, to give more thoughtfully, to buy more locally and less overall.
