This study examines the evolution of ecological degradation within the context of consumption in the past three decades. The study used the R Studio program to conduct a bibliometric meta-analysis. The data set consists of 2183 articles selected from the Web of Science database by searching the keywords (ALL=("Ecological Degradation") AND ALL=("consum*")) OR (ALL=("environmental degradation") AND ALL=("consum*")). Graphics related to annual scientific production, corresponding author's country, most cited countries, most relevant sources, word cloud, word tree, trend topics and thematic map which are revealed using the visualization technique will be included in the study. As a result, this research aims to create a comprehensive framework for articles on ecological degradation within the context of consumption published in the last thirty years.
