    and economic crisis in the UK, consumerism and [*nolink https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/nationalaccounts/satelliteaccounts/bulletins/consumertrends/januarytomarch2022 *]consumer
    spending appears to be slightly higher[*endlink*] than it was during the coronavirus pandemic.


     

    However, this isn’t necessarily
    indicative of economic strength or stability, while the fact remains that
    consumerism in its most basic form can have negative effects on the economy,
    households and even our natural environment.

     

    But what exactly is consumerism,
    and what are its potentially negative consequences for the natural environment?
    Let’s find out!

     

    [*bold*]What is Consumerism?[*endbold*]

    [*bold*] [*endbold*]

    In simple terms, consumerism is
    the notion that increasing the consumption of goods and services is always a desirable
    objective and outcome, both from the perspective of economic growth and each
    individual’s mental wellbeing and happiness.

     

    This is [*nolink https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/consumerism.asp *]grounded in so-called
    ‘Keynesian’ economics[*endlink*], which state that consumer spending is a key driver
    of economic growth and a prosperous state in which individual households and
    corporations can thrive.

     

    It’s this branch of economic thinking
    that also promotes a low-tax economy, as this is thought to increase disposable
    income levels and the amount reinvested into the economy on a regular basis.

     

    This is then though to create
    subsequent growth and prosperity for multiple parties, although there are
    numerous challenges and hurdles to be overcome when reducing tax levies in an
    attempt to increase spending.

     

    [*bold*]How Has Consumerism Grown Over
    Time?[*endbold*]

    [*bold*] [*endbold*]

    Consumerism is often described in
    terms of consumer spending, which measures household expenditure over a predetermined
    period of time.

     

    While this figure is in a
    constant state of flux, it has risen exponentially over time since Q1 1955,
    when final household consumption expenditure reached £66,618 million. By Q1
    2022, however, this had increased to £345,472 million, [*nolink https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/nationalaccounts/satelliteaccounts/timeseries/abjr/pn2 *]having
    peaked at a shade over £350,422 million[*endlink*] during the second quarter of 2019.

     

    But what has caused consumerism
    to increase at such a pronounced rate during this time? Well, we do know that
    increased spending has come at the expensive of savings in the developed world,
    suggesting that rising consumerism has much to do with a decrease in self
    control (as lifestyles have changed) and much easier access to debt.

     

    The rise of online spending and
    ecommerce has also increased shoppers’ access to goods, with 1.3 million UK women
    admitting to spending up to £1,000 on clothes per annum.

     

    This highlights just how fashion
    retail is booming in the UK, with a staggering total of more than £21 billion
    being spent every single year on refreshing our wardrobes according to a recent
    study by women’s retailer [*link https://www.damart.co.uk/C-313884-t_shirts *]Damart[*endlink*]
    earlier this year.

     

    [*bold*]The Environmental Impact of
    Consumerism[*endbold*]

    [*bold*] [*endbold*]

    From an economic perspective,
    there are numerous issues with consumerism, especially as households spend more
    than they earn and become encumbered with mounting debt problems.

     

    There’s also a potentially negative
    environmental impact of consumerism. This isn’t caused by consumerism itself,
    however, but more the fact that shoppers don’t believe there is an issue and
    continue to [*nolink https://greentumble.com/the-negative-effects-of-consumerism/#:~:text=Aswellasobvioussocial,acceleratedclimatechange4. *]consume
    resources at a quicker rate[*endlink*] than they can be replenished.

     

    Similarly, increased consumerism and
    the rise of ecommerce means more goods being shipped internationally on a daily
    basis, with this creating an incrementally growing carbon footprint that impacts
    both the developed and developing world.

     

    However, the aforementioned Damart
    study shows that things may be improving in these respects, with one-in-five
    (20%) of the 2,000 respondents suggesting that they at least think about
    sustainability when shopping. However, women are considerably more sustainably
    minded than men, with 51% of this demographic saying that they take this into
    account when shopping for new garments.

     

    Interestingly, 9% of Brits try to
    shop in a greener way but struggle to find sustainable clothing that they like,
    suggesting that more must be done to provide second-hand or local garments on a
    mass scale.

     



















































































    Certainly, the will is there to
    curb some of the environmental excesses of consumerism, and this is positive
    news for the world around us!
