ANSWERS


Linear model of consumption

1. List the five parts of the linear model of consumption and explain each in one sentence.

Extraction is mining, harvesting, and striping the earth of its natural resources.

Production is using energy and chemicals to turn the natural resources into products.

Distribution is delivering the products to stores.

Consumption is buying those products maybe because advertisements have convinced us that we need them, and they are likely to break quickly or otherwise become obsolete.

Disposal is getting rid of the old products, typically very soon after purchasing them.

2. We talked about how each part of the model hurts the environment in some way. Give an example for each.

Extraction: mining and harvesting hurts ecosystems and habitats

Production: chemicals used are toxic and by-products are polluting

Distribution: shipping, trucking products all over the globe pollutes the air

Consumption: buying lots of stuff means lots of packaging that gets trashed

Disposal: filling up landfills and/or incineration causes toxins to get into our water and air
