MORAL MINEFIELD: Ethical Consumption

This week on Moral Minefield, we tackled the moral dilemma of how to be an ethical consumer.

Chances are that if you live in the west, it’s impossible to fully avoid any kind of product produced in a sweatshop. Everything from the shoes on your feet to the smartphone in your pocket has probably passed through the hands of an underpaid sweatshop worker producing goods in unsafe conditions.

But we still consume those products because often it’s convenient to do so or because our circumstances make us. So, what can we do about it?

Listen to our chat with Dr Tim Dean, philosopher, professor, writer and educator, as we delve into the issue of unethical consumption.

Tim Dean is a faculty member at The School of Life Australia, and facilitates the school’s Meaning Of Life workshop. You can see the full school curriculum here.
