“What is the impact of mass production on the environment?”

 

Mass Production has been very successful in generating immense amounts of wealth and material objects. However, does this come with a cost? Since many objects need to be produced within a given amount of time this process expends energy and materials at an expedited rate in addition to operating the factories. Furthermore, Mass Production encourages consumerism, which in turns leads to higher levels of goods being produced. We can try to avoid these problems by investing in companies who use more sustainable manufacturing operations such as factories that utilize lean manufacturing or renewable energy.
