I thought about how suppressing a person may decrease their consumption of non-fair trade, of non-eco items, of animal products and similar. I look at it coldly; would suppressing people with alcohol, drugs etc. Decrease the harm to earth?
My conclusion: visibly yes, statically measurable in the past and probably still yes.
However when you infactor the microbiological burden resulting, increasing stress - hindering healthy growth and increasing consumption to not feel the pain, then no.
Look at the trend: doing less, isolation (quarantine-like) and generally a decrease in activity.
There is of course the issue of addiction that becomes collective; the low increases more and more and as any addict knows; it only gets worse and worse along the way. The biological stress the worsening, the damage only a part of the low. The metaphoric - heart damage the worst.
