At the 2015 Sustainability Forum, academic, industry, and nonprofit leaders went beyond the idea of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” and examined the reasons for and impacts of our everyday consumption habits. The title of the forum, “Rethinking Our Consumption: Beyond Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” addressed how and why we consume things, the impacts of our consumption choices, how to identify sustainable choices, and how our individual choices can shape the future.
Maggie Grabow, a postdoctoral fellow at the UW Global Health Institute, presented “Mindfulness and Sustainable Behaviors: Shifting Beyond a Culture of Consumption” to discuss what impacts our habits and choices have. To watch Grabow’s presentation, please click here.
