on the market that promote environmental conservation

manufactured, how its manufacturing process impacts the
environment and if it generates any damage or social
Also consider what impact the environment and the social
environment (especially close to you) has the use of what you
plan to buy.
Every time you buy something, you must also consider the
impact caused by waste and garbage generated.
Avoid products "disposable" if they are not strictly necessary.

you can, to do the shopping, bring your own cloth bags,

they are worn out.
