We’re all used to taking re-usable carrier bags to the shops now. But a little more care and planning can ensure that you shop in a truly sustainable way. You’ll be reducing your carbon footprint, plastic waste and traffic emissions, as well as having an impact on animal cruelty. On average, we create 8.2kg of carbon every day in buying food, and this needs to fall by half to meet climate goals by half by 2050. So every small step makes a difference.
Our own refills service at the Sussex Green Hub on the last Saturday of each month (from 25th September) should be a first port of call. You’ll find below a number of easy steps to shop more sustainably.
We’re always interested to hear your tips, so do contact us with great ideas.
