COSMETIC & HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS
Purchasing sustainable and toxic-free products is good for the environment and also for our health. These products regularly contain harmful ingredients that can cause allergies, health disease & contribute to water pollution when it leaves our homes.
ONCE A WEEK GO VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN
Food production to feed animals, livestock and byproducts, and land use is responsible for about a quarter of our emissions. It takes an enormous amount of water to grow crops and raaise animals - not to mention the effect emissions have on land, air & water quality. .Reducing meat consumption, will reduce your carbon footprint and will contribute to reducing animal cruelty.
REDUCE YOUR WASTE
It’s an enormous challenge to recycle the amount of waste we produce. So, the best way is trying not to produce it, by reducing as much as possible. Take your reusable mug with you instead of using plastic or paper cups for coffee and water. Use tap water instead of bottled water, Australia has one of the cleanest tap waters in the world. And finally, use reusable cutlery and lunch boxes whenever you can.
BUY FOR QUALITY
Impulsive buying leaves us with lots of stuff that we barely use. So, if you really need that item, then opt for buying quality products that will last longer, will not break easily & will reduce your waste production.
CHOOSE BUSINESSES THAT ARE COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABILITY
Businesses can take action on climate change by reducing environmental impact on its operations, offer sustainable products and services to their customers as well as engage and develop the local community.
