First off, I appreciate that we can have civilized discussions on Cake where we can learn from each other, even if we ultimately have different viewpoints
I would agree with you that we need to be more deliberate in our decision to order shit from Amazon if overseas shipment is required.
If your kid needs anti-carsick glasses shipped from China so that your daughter can ride in the car without puking, that’s meeting a need.
If your insulin prescription refill is going to be shipped from Indonesia, that’s meeting a need.
On the other hand, if you’re ordering bling for your Tesla from China, I wouldn’t call that a need, or even a want that can’t be done without.
So I’d agree that we should be asking such questions, instead of blindly following the no straws movement and having little to no impact on combatting climate change.
That’s my two cents, anyway.
