Green Shopping Tips

  1. 1. Green Shopping Tips  Choose items that contain the least amount of packaging.  Purchase high quality items that will last longer. Bring your own bag when shopping, decline plastic bags offered to you.  Use non-disposable items instead of disposable paper or plastic products. At home, in the office, when having a party or whenever possible, use a mug, thermos, real cutlery, plates, a cotton tablecloth and serviettes, it saves valuable resources.  Avoid disposable products such as razors, pencils, and lighters. Instead choose products that can be refilled and reused. When staying at the hotel, be also careful !  Buy heavily used items in the largest container possible, such as detergent, oil and rice. Bring your own container to reduce the use of plastic bags/ packaging.  Choose rechargeable batteries and long life light bulbs.  Only buy as much food as you need to reduce the amount of food thrown out into landfills or storm drains.  Avoid using plastic straws. They are usually unnecessary often end up polluting waterways and harming marine life.  Buy big water bottles instead of small ones - they use fewer resources to make.  Avoid products that have strong negative environmental impacts or negatively influence animal welfare.  Buy organic food products as they are better for both the environment and your health.  Buy local products and support local producers and vendors rather than big supermarkets.  Buy fairly traded products if local products are not available.
