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).
