[1] We understand consumerism broadly as “the theory that an increasing consumption of goods is economically desirable” (Merriam-Webster). EcoFaith Recovery asserts that this premise and the social, economic, religious, and political systems which support it are destructive to the Earth and, human beings, and the web of life of which we are a part.
