Critical Thinking

So I've been thinking about what the opposing view point might be to sustainable materials or what could be the possible downside. I think it all comes down to money. Using sustainable materials and safer processes is likly to make the product more expensive, at least for a while, until the world catches up. More expensive goods means that some people just won't be able to afford them, while others might not be will to pay more for the same product that was made sustainably. Which, will allow all the bad mass production oging on in the world today to continue.
Also, I can see animal rights activists getting upset over using leather and fur, even though these can be produced in a sustainable, cruelty-free manner(ie: wild caught fur instead of fur farming).
