What it means to be a responsible consumer is that you are only taking what you need and not what you want. It’s important to be a responsible consumer is because you could buy what you don’t need and never finish it. The world will get polluted and it’s not good for us to breathe in. Ways you can be a responsible consumer is by only taking what you need and finishing it. If you don’t finish it give it to someone else. Here is a saying my teacher told me take what you want eat what you take. I think that this saying is helpful because if you take more than what you need it’s a waste. We are polluting the Earth if we don’t take care of our waste properly.
