How can you incorporate sustainability in your shopping behavior?
First, I think it is about informing yourself.
We live in an information era, where we know what Kim Kardashian ate for breakfast, but not where the products we produce or buy come from, who made them and what effects they have on us, the people who made them or the planet. And this goes for consumers, businesses, and governments. What we don’t know or understand, we can’t change.
Secondly, following the 3 R’s below (from the waste management R’s) as a guide, is a great way to incorporate sustainability in your daily life.
Reduce - Reuse - Recycle
Basically meaning, buying less, buying better, taking care of/repairing or remaking what you buy and keeping stuff in circulation for longer, and when you’re done with your things, give it away or sell it and if it’s completely worn out, make sure you sort it for recycling. No matter the product.
So, kind of, living like my dad haha!
