I put a fair amount of effort into buying stuff sustainably / ethically these days. Ordered a sweatshirt from a place that makes good quality gear designed to last, sustainable materials and manufacture, ethically made, all that. They say they ship direct from the factory in Portugal to avoid transport to and from warehouses etc.
So then I get the tracking notification from UPS. Picked up from the supplier about 8pm last night, was in Cologne around 1am, Essex around 5am (Stansted presumably) and delivered here lunchtime. Thing is, I never said I wanted it quickly but I didn't get a choice. Wife ordered a new pair of shoes and they took about two weeks from Germany and I'd have been happy to wait two weeks, too.
This obsession with instant gratification / delivery is the cancer that'll fucking kill us all. I emailed to complain anyway - be interesting to see if they get a lot of complaints because stuff arrives too quickly...
