Today humanity is driven by sparkles, features, gadgets, and fast products and this has become the mantra of living. During the pursuit of material acquisition, man has developed an emptiness something humanity is blissfully unaware of. Organizations are in the race for production and pushing products in the market which results in aggressive advertising, and it tends to create a need that is not there. In the altar of profit and aggressive marketing, the ecological cycle and intrinsic value of nature are overlooked. A false sense of need which in turn is morphed into desire is created and this is an endless cycle. The book has taken a deep dive in consumerism phenomenology and considered diverse aspects like ecology, sustainability, biodiversity, phenomenology, human consumption, and perspectives from eastern philosophy and modern science to delve into consumption, planet, and wellbeing
