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.
