"Purchasing is a Moral Act"
A consumer examination for peace of faith

The stuff we buy goes on a long journey before it ends up in our hands. This process starts with the extraction of raw materials and then advances through production, distribution, consumption, and finally disposal. This process is called a “supply chain.” 

Unfortunately, the steps of this process often exploit and harm local workers, nearby communities, and the natural environment, especially the first step: extraction.

This examination will help you identify how the extraction of the raw materials needed to manufacture your purchases impacted workers, nearby communities, and the earth. It will help you imagine new ways to purchase responsibly.
