In a 2012 TEDxTalk, Paul Gilding, a writer, activist and adviser on sustainable economy points out an important statement, that shall make us all reflect: "The Earth is full. It's full of us, it's full of our stuff, full of our waste, full of our demands. Yes, we are a brilliant and creative species, but we've created a little too much stuff -- so much that our economy is now bigger than its host, our planet."
We do have only one planet. Coming so far, we continue to invent new technology, remarkable opportunities in artificial intelligence and much more. This doesn’t mean we shall not consume but rather we have to think differently on how we consume.
