Performative activism unconstructive, prevents progress in climate movement

Uniqlo, H&M, and Lululemon are just a few names of brands who are taking part in sustainability initiatives, but the sustainability initiatives are just for show.

In the environmental movement hunting is a controversial topic. One of the strongest anti-hunting arguments revolves around trophy hunting.
