Post-consumerism is often suggesting that there is a growing willingness to assert that well-being, as distinct from material success, is the aim of life. Post-consumerism can also be viewed as moving beyond the current model of addictive consumerism.[1] This personal and societal strategy utilizes each individual's core values to identify the "satisfaction of enough for today."[2] The intent and outcome of this basic strategy to date has "reached people where they are rather than simply where we are."[3]
