Consume: Let's Redefine its Meaning
eat, drink, or ingest (food or drink). "people consume more organic foods now"
buy (goods or services). "regenerative products are on the rise."
use up (a resource). "people are creating zero-waste systems"
(especially of a fire) completely destroy. "the love spread rapidly, and new systems were born"
(of a feeling) absorb all of the attention and energy of (someone or something). "the community was consumed with joy"
With this context set...
The "first world" is referred to as a consumer society because it's economy is based on things being consumed. Whether it's gas, clothing, food, media, or anything that we use up as we purchase it, it's something that we consume. In knowing this + the fact we are now in the age of the Anthropocene, as humans are now the drivers of change on the Planet, it is time to consume consciously.
Conscious consumption is a way of living that prioritizes mindfulness, sustainability, and ethical considerations in the way we consume goods and services. It's a lifestyle choice that can positively impact our own lives, as well as the environment and society at large. At VIBEUP, we believe in conscious consumption, and we offer two divisions of consuming content that support this way of living: the mindful shop of products and the mindful library of content.
MINDFUL SHOP of PRODUCTS
- is where you can find goods that are sustainably made, ethically sourced, and eco-friendly. We carefully curate our product selection to ensure that everything we offer aligns with our values of conscious consumption. Whether you're in the market for new clothing, shoes, reusable items, or health products, you can feel confident that what you're buying is good for both you and the planet.
But conscious consumption is about more than the products we buy, it's also about the content we consume.
MINDFUL LIBRARY of CONTENT
- a collection of resources that inspire positive action and personal growth. From blog posts to podcasts to online courses, documentaries, readings, tips, recipes, and daily practices, we offer a variety of content that can help you live a more mindful, intentional life. The library covers topics like sustainable living, mindfulness practices, and self-care. Our podcasts feature interviews with thought leaders in the wellness industry, and our online courses provide in-depth instruction on topics like meditation, yoga, nutrition, to growing your business, consciousness, and financial freedom. We believe that the more we educate ourselves about conscious consumption, the better equipped we are to make mindful choices in all aspects of our lives.
At VIBEUP, we're committed to promoting conscious consumption and helping people live more intentionally. Whether you're looking to purchase products that align with your values or consume content that inspires positive change, we're here to support the world on your journey to help humanity and the planet, and that starts with our choices. Together, we can make a difference in the world by consuming consciously.
