The government shouldn’t have to baby their people, they can think for themselves. Removing the ability for them to have a choice strips people of their freedom, and America is built on the ideal of freedom. Adding on, the soda ban might not even have any health benefits. Referring back to Gross’ article, a nutritionist is quoted as saying, “It is not reasonable to blame or cite one product… [the proposal] produces a false sense of accomplishment in the fight against obesity.” Even health experts disagree with the ban. This mandate supposedly improves people’s well-being, but it fails at accomplishing that goal.
They share similar outlooks when discussing ways to make less of a carbon footprint on the planet. The environmental approach was very evident in both of their talks, but they are also saying that everyone on this planet needs to be more mindful of the choices we make. Hill in his laid back manner, sharing his thoughts on the way to make the world less crowded is a much more feasible than never buying anything new to wear.

Although Beyond the Bean offers a unique selling proposition, it currently has no position in the social entertainment market. Tight competition with Fleetway and Palasad North has exhibited the importance of creating strong marketing strategies that focus on improving brand positioning, a main competitive differentiation tool.

It may seem absurd at first, but the idea of a “Buy Nothing Day” may be what society truly needs. The main focus of this day is to reduce the damage we put on the environment from pollution, overconsumption, and making wrong choices. The “Buy Nothing Day” should be in full effect and should be incorporated into every month for the sake of the environment, the people, and the world. Initially, many individuals may just ignore this movement, due to the fact that nothing can be purchased on this specific day; but if they were to give a chance to this movement, they could see that the benefits outweigh the negatives. A decrease in excess consumption may just help people make better choices in the future.
