“The key is to ask yourself, is this something that I will use for a long time? Or is it something only used for a couple of months, going to sit around and clutter my house?” – Dr. Kai Chan
Dr. Kai Chan, CSFS Associate and Professor at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability discussed the ways in which sustainability and social behaviour should be incorporated in Black Friday shopping. According to Chan, there’s no harm in taking advantage of the sales: that being said, it’s best to be mindful of the item’s potential for longterm usage as well.
