Green Living while Shopping

REDUCE

  • Don’t overbuy!
  • Buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste. Promote Products rather than the packaging: We generally throw away the packaging of a product. Product packaging is just a waste and contributes to almost 30% municipal waste being dumped in landfills, which release large volumes of methane. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that causes global warming. So prefer buying products with less packing or bulk packing, to reduce packaging waste.
  • Do not accept or use polybags. Carry your own re-usable, eco-friendly bag like cotton bags, jute bags, recycled newspaper bags, etc. for carrying groceries. Click here to see some options.
  • Buy energy-efficient products: Look for energy stars or other certifications for assessing their energy consumption while purchasing. Purchase low-wattage equipments, if possible. These will help you save money too, as they reduce your electricity bill.
  • Buy solar-powered products.
  • Online Shopping: Shop online, this not only will reduce fuel consumption and green house gas emission by not driving to the shop, but each time you buy something on-line, organizations working for environment protection such as WWF receives a contribution out of that.
  • Go for green Products: If possible go for Fair Trade products while shopping, which symbolize that sustainability measures have been taken care of. Stop buying products which deteriorate environment. Click here to know more.
