Here is my third glossary post. These terms are based on consumer protection and regulation.
Sustainability Consortium: “a global non-profit organization working to transform the consumer goods industry by partnering with leading companies to define, develop, and deliver more sustainable products (The Sustainability Consortium, n.d.)”
Retailer: “a person, shop, or business that sells goods to the public (Cambridge, n.d.).”
The definition of this word can be a little fuzzy, as it is thrown around a lot without clarification of the definition. The definition that I found is quite simple to grasp, which could be why the word is used in such a breezy fashion.
Hazardous: “involving or exposing one to risk (as of loss or harm) (Merriam-Webster, n.d.)”
I included this word for the same reason I chose the word retailer, it’s important to be aware of commonly used words, as they can eventually lose their meaning if they are just used without awareness of their definition.
