Online Shopping - Why Do We Put Ourselves Through It?

"in my opinion i [believe] that online shopping is better for the [environment] than normal shopping(going out to shop) i think this for one main reason. this reason is that you do not have to leave the house to shop this mean that their is less cars and forms of transport working overtime; which means that their is less pollution [accessing] the atmosphere around the [era] you live. this means that their is cleaner air and happier lives."

 This must be a joke right?  When I get out of bed at 2:30 in the morning because I can't sleep, and start buying eyeline at the cheap-cosmetics-to-your-house website, the LAST thing on my mind is the environment or the atmosphere!

Sitting there in my PJs, I might think about how nice it is to be in the comfort of my house, not in traffic, trying to find a parking spot, and being forced to pay a premium price for the products I am ordering.

I might also think about how big of a selection of items there are online and how easy it is to get free shipping.  

But I'll be as honest as I can be, I don't think about pollution, or cleaner air, or global warming when I am entering my credit card into my favorite online shopping site!
