Due to this fact, consumption oughts to be an object of education. In the education for consumption the family- school implication is of most relevance, since parents establish the first guidelines and criteria in this matter, together with the social context and the media. The education for consumption implies information, capacity of critical analysis of situations and sensitivity with respect to the consequences of the immoderate consumption, which puts in danger the very survival of the planet.
