Selling Sustainability

What I got from Fashion and Sustainability, was selling ideas is the new “fashion” and what we are able to put on the market, can hopefully produce a better understanding and lead us to sustainability. Walker says that sustainability is beyond our full understanding, and as we progress in this world, taking small evolutionary steps into what we think is the right direction is what we need to do. I agree that change is constant and is a necessity. Without change there would be no “new” or creating new, from old. With the new, our society can work on attempting new ideas in order to reach sustainability. Society tends to follow trends very well. Recently being vegan has become very popular throughout the United States and not saying this is a bad thing, but if our society can jump on board with saving animals and not eating meat, then maybe one day an idea will come out that leads us to sustainability, and it will become the new trend eventually making the world a better place. I’m sure that is not the best way to put it, but the more people start recycling, using less electricity, or maybe even biking instead of using cars, more and more people will follow this and it will eventually lead our world to a better place. I can see this happening, the more stores produce green and environment friendly products, other companies will follow and then there’s an abundance of products out there leading this world to a better environment. Selling something, whether it be a product or an idea, has both a negative and positive affect on the world. It is negative in my opinion, because we are being distracted. The news is so negative and there are so many bad things going on in this world that it is hard not to feel hopeless. The positive affect though, is that we are all so influenced. So many people are on their phones 24/7 and instead of taking this in a negative way, maybe over time more ideas will come out selling sustainability. I believe that we can take something bad and turn it into good, it just takes time.

    What Walker was referring to is actually the concept of fashion (constant change), not necessarily clothing. How might that alter your perspective here about its necessity?
