Abstract and Keywords
What is the connection between environmental sustainability and consumption? This chapter focuses on how consumption has been employed as a tactic for social change that is meant to improve the natural environment. Although consumption is a central way that society contributes to and responds to concern about environmental degradation, it has received limited attention in the research on sustainability thus far. This chapter focuses specifically on the ways that consumption has been addressed by researchers focusing on sustainability, paying particular attention to the environmental and environmental justice movements and the recent wave of contention in the Resistance, a political movement in the United States that is challenging the Trump administration and its policies, more specifically.
