Based upon the loss of not only many non-renewable resources, but also of renewable plant-based

A friend of mine from India once commented that in India, people live in simple homes with simple clothing,

very valuable in India. He noted, that it was the complete reverse in the U.S.: we’ll put all of our money into
clothing, homes, cars and possessions, yet we demand cheap food and do not value it in terms of nutrition or
worth our time to prepare.
