The salient reason for difficulty in switching to a sustainable lifestyle could be overwhelming for the sectors of the society which are having little knowledge and have acquaintance with the oversimplified concepts of environmental concerns.
Five reasons which make the switch difficult are:
As the days pass by, the natural resources in our planet are declining, particularly the fossil fuels. The product designs produced by most of the companies without sustainable principles focus on limitless economic growth. This strategy would totally work, if the planet had infinite natural resources. The lack of awareness on the depleting environmental crisis is the main reason for devaluing and pacing the overall strategy of sustainability at a very low hierarchical prioritization.
Irrespective of the elite class, we tend to associate the personal value with the luxury products. This could lead to an unregulated consumption of non-eco-friendly products resulting in increased individual carbon footprint.
Misconceptions, myths, ignorance and narrow-mindedness of the environmental issues and its adverse effects on human life and economy withholds the decrease in switching to environmental sustainability.
Ways to monitor and track sustainability are limited and fragmented at an individual scale.
Thus, it's important to rely upon companies that preach sustainability, as we would better demonstrate sustainable products by turning waste into wealth for a go-green globe and a healthy human life. Thereby, aiming towards an easier and trust-worthy sustainable switch.
