The debate around the possibilities of using green consumption as a strategy to address the current environmental crisis is still open. This paper, using elements from the sociology of consumption found in the work of Zygmunt Bauman, and the aesthetics of existence from Michael Foucault, problematize the current notions about the political value of green consumption and its relation to the development of collective action. It is argued that green consumption represents a fertile ground for political participation through the care of others. The argument is developed in reference to diverse initiatives inside the Local Food Movement. This article develops the idea of a subject able to resist by opening diverse consumption spaces that challenge many aspects of the current global economy.
