Our ever-expanding selection of goods makes conscious consumerism easy and accessible.
Tips to Go Low Waste
Look for foods with no, or minimal, packaging. Loose fruits and vegetables, bulk cereals and grains, and anything grown locally means less plastic waste with the added benefit of being healthier!
Compost. 30% of trash that ends up in landfills comes from food scraps and yard waste, and this waste releases dangerous gases that contribute to climate change. Composting your organic waste will add valuable nutrients to soil, making plants grow faster and helping counteract the effects of climate change by pulling carbon dioxide from the air.
Reuse and repurpose. There’s no denying we live in a consumerist society, but you can make a difference by being a mindful consumer. Buy secondhand or join a freecycling group online. When you do buy something new, look for products that are designed to last. Repair whatever you can and donate what you no longer need.
