Whether you have vast amounts of money your bank account is a modest one, perhaps you have been thinking that you want to spend each penny in an honorable way. Do you already have a plan for how to do that? If you do, more power to you. On the other hand, maybe you are looking for ideas on how to best spend your money. If that's the case, from checking out conscious consumer shops to choosing charities for your donations, here are some ideas that might help you.
Conscious Consumer Shopping - Have you ever consider why some of the wonderful products you buy are so very inexpensive? It might distress you to find out that those very products were created in places where very little children and youth were used to do the labor. Also, it might be that those cheap products were created in other places that violated human rights. It's enough to keep you from sleeping, isn't it?
The idea is for you to do your homework before you shop. Check on where items were made and what the conditions existed at the factories. Another way to ensure that the products you purchase are made in an honorable setting is to purchase products that were made locally. From buying produce that was raised in people's gardens to purchasing handmade crafts and clothes made by people in your own community, there are a variety of things you can do to shop responsibly. Check labels to find out the ingredients that are in things like household cleaning products and beauty products. Make sure that they won't harm the environment. Conscious consumer shopping can make a big difference in the world, a dollar at a time.
Make Charitable Donations - Whether it's a dollar, ten dollars, a hundred dollars, or even more, think of making donations to charities. Do some important homework before you make your donations. For example, find out how much of your money will be going to so-called volunteers and how much of your money will be going to the actual charity. While it's disturbing and even sad to consider the fact that there might be people more interested in money than the charity they represent, listening to the news might have shown you that happens more often than it should. Consider your passions. For example, if you are concerned about living conditions in third-world countries, find out how you can improve them. Maybe you love animals. If that's the case, consider donating to animal defense charities.
Your dollar is your vote. Make it count, through conscious consumer shopping and charitable donations.Share
