planet cost

If 'planet cost' was embedded in consumerism...?

If full environmental costs were embedded into consumer product pricing, then the price of high environmental cost consumer products would rise, making them less affordable and so consumption would fall and so reduce the impact on the planet.

Conspicuous consumption and decadence deserves taxing, because its real costs are destructive on the planet and need to be curbed for the planet's health and ours.
