Hace un llamado a la reflexión por parte de los ciudadanos para que en el momento de comprar bienes y servicios realicen una evaluación conciente de su procedencia, beneficios, impactos sociales y ambientales y promuevan así una producción sostenible y responsable socialmente. De manera que, en lugar de ser manipulables por las ofertas, los medios y la publicidad ejerzan libremente el derecho a decidir qué compran y a través de ello se conviertan en agentes de cambio y contribuyan a hacer una sociedad pensada globalmente. 2012-01-01 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Artículo revisado por pares Cualitativo Qualitative https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/signos/article/view/957 10.15332/s2145-1389.2012.0001.05 spa https://revistas.usantotomas.edu.co/index.php/signos/article/view/957/1240 application/pdf Universidad Santo Tomás / Instituto Colombiano de Normas Técnicas y Certificación ICONTEC SIGNOS - Investigación en sistemas de gestión; Vol. 4, Núm. 1 (2012); 87-94 2463-1140 2145-1389 SIGNOS-Investigación en Sistemas de Gestión; Vol. 4, Núm. 1 (2012); 87-94
