I’m a PhD student working on a dissertation about ethical consumption. My job is to question everything, to pour over research, and to never stop learning. This is a space where I can share my research interests in a more accessible, casual way.
My goal is simple. I want to avoid purchasing products with hidden costs. I want to keep my money out of the hands of producers who abuse and exploit their workers. I want to know where my clothes are made and where my food is grown. I want to support artisans, local farmers, and Fair Trade cooperatives. I want to use my consumer dollars to fight for fair wages, safe workplaces, and environmental sustainability. I want to find contentment while consuming less.
