Eco shopper

Eco-shoppers reduce the amount of waste they produce by making environmentally conscious decisions when it comes to buying products.

Tips to Eco-shopping include:

  • Buying products with minimal and/or recyclable packaging.
  • Remembering to bring your green bags to the shops.
  • Buying in bulk.

Shopping at places that allow you to purchase food and drink items in reusable containers (such as honey from a health food shop, dry goods from a bulk supplier or using a reusable cup to purchase take away hot beverages).
