Haul culture is an online phenomenon where people show off their recent purchases through videos or photos. Hauls are often videos where influencers open shopping bags from cheap, fast fashion retailers. They can also include details about the purchase, such as the cost and experiences.

Haul videos have been popular on YouTube since the early 2000s, and have also become popular on other social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram. Hauls can be a fun way to highlight new trends and get a glimpse into the subject's life and style. However, some say that haul culture promotes consumerism and normalizes a use-and-throw culture.

Your Task:

  1. Talk to someone about haul culture and discuss your opinions about it - where do you stand? Where do they stand?

  2. Write 1-2 paragraphs that explains your discussion and if either partner changed their opinion after discussing the topic.
