#youdecide Saretuz Sare exhibition
From 1 to 15 March in the Padre Arrupe Building you can see the exhibition #youdecide
Saretuz is a network of associations and entities of Donostia that promotes conscious consumption through awareness campaigns and offers real alternatives to buy goods and services consciously. We encourage responsible consumption in which we become aware of the power we have as consumers to change the current model of production and consumption.
Saretuz is a network of 16 organizations working together in Donostia to value alternative consumption models.In this organization they like to think that conscious and transformative consumption is a consumption that builds, which is at the same time a strategy and a fundamental tool to be able to live in the society they dream of: a society where life is the center and the economy is at their service, based on justice, on equality between women and men and between peoples, in solidarity, in balance with nature, in commitment, in cooperation…
In the exhibition #youdecide we want to show that everything we consume has a social, economic and environmental impact. Therefore, the act of consuming has to be coherent and conscious. Before consuming we should ask ourselves the previous question of whether I really need it. Ask us where this product comes from and/or the km you could make. Who, where, under what conditions it occurs. Reflecting on our consumption habits is a good practice that undoubtedly encourages a change in the current model.
