Wants or Needs?

Is having the latest technology a want or a need?

How often do you get a new cel phone or mp3 player? Did you really need a new model? Do you consider the environmental impact of these purchases? If you are addicted, how can you break your addiction?

Wants or Needs?

In my experience the idea of convenience has almost alway gotten in the way of focussing only on what I need. Also based on what I have seen in others, I am not alone in this. When I go to a store and see something that I might want, I immediately focus on that thing instead of whatever I need. I think a lot of people buy certain items  because it makes some aspect of their life easier, but from the carbon calculator I learned how big of an impact little things like that can have. I must try to be rational when there is something I want. I will have to think if it serves me any real  purpose and about how it might factor into my carbon footprint. I don't really go out to stores often, so I would hope with that fact and being more aware would lower my carbon footprint.
