What you can do
Environmental change is created through small steps by many people.
Always put your reusable shopping bags in the car after unpacking your shopping, so they are there when you need them next. Carry an Envirosax in your handbag. The light tote bag packs down to nothing, and is great for those times when you realise at the checkout that you’ve left your reusable shopping bags in the car. Use a non-plastic reusable water bottle. Invest in a water filter at home if you don’t like tap water. That way the water in the reusable water bottle will always taste good. SodaStream is a reusable bottle system and the best way to enjoy sparkling water at home. Buy products from companies such as Ethique, which have come up with innovative eco-packaging solutions. Convert your pantry storage back to glass with a selection of jars and bottles that can be re-filled with organic and locally sourced products.
