Ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns is necessary to ensure the viability of the environment for future generations and the longevity of humanity itself.
Although the harmful consequences of our current consumption and production patterns are apparent, the global demand for consumer goods has continued to rise unabated. To meet this growing demand, production levels have risen proportionately. We have become increasingly reliant on mass production technologies that cause enormous destruction to the environment and threaten the sustainability of the natural resources that humans depend upon for survival.
Continued population growth and current consumption and production patterns pose urgent and unprecedented challenges to the sustainability of the environment and to all living species. Such unprecedented challenges necessitate novel and innovative approaches to ensuring sustainability of the environment. Helping ensure all pregnancies are planned is a way to reduce the burden on the environment, but the current method mix has left gaps in accessibility and uptake.
That is why it’s so important to invest in new male contraceptives.
