I couldn't watch this entire documentary in one sitting. I felt ill after the first 20 minutes. The next day, I watched another 40 minutes and felt even more ill than I had the day prior. On the third day, I finished the film.
I honestly don't know what to do now. The arguments on human rights issues alone have never been enough to get me to change my behavior. But now the arguments for the environmental impacts have made me seriously reconsider my behavior.
I need some time to figure out how I can be a good blogger. In the mean time, please watch The True Cost (available on Netflix) and share your thoughts with me. How can we find satisfaction and happiness in something that doesn't compromise the welfare of people and the land? How can we be better?
