    Like every living creature, we humans also have to consume and there is nothing wrong with enjoying consumption. However, we often lose our grip on things, particularly on the amount of stuff that is not important or even completely superfluous. And this results in a lack of raw materials for others or for more important purposes. All these needless things mean that we waste energy and, in turn, contribute to climate change, which menaces everything. So it's worth doing without things - less is more.
