Article Consuming unsustainably
Key message: A major reason why consumption negatively affects the environment and causes over-use of resources is because the costs to society of environmental and resource degradation are not fully reflected in the prices of goods and services. Many goods are cheap even though they harm the environment, ecosystems or human health. (SOER 2010)

File Food consumption patterns
(Transcription of audio on video) Industrialised countries have made significant improvements to their energy and resource efficiency, but some of the gain has been offset by more widespread consumption. Some of this is to do with our food production. It takes approximately 1,000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of wheat, over two and a half times that to produce 1 kg of eggs, and a massive 13 and a half times that amount of water to produce 1 kg of beef. If the entire global population were to adopt a western-style diet, about 75% more water would be needed for food production. Source: SOER 2005
