Unsustainable consumer behaviour: A cause to environmental cataclysm

The environment is an integral part of the lives of every living being on Earth, where we dwell upon the consumables provided by our planet. The term "consumerism" is used in several ways. In economics, it usually refers to a movement promoting the rights and safety of the consumer that arose in the early 1900s as people grew increasingly concerned about consumer safety and the toll taken on factory workers by manufacturing methods. Consumerism is the way one prioritizes one's material possession and when one consumes more than what they need.
