The Week of Monday, October 14

As well as your primary carbon footprint, there is also a secondary footprint that you cause through your buying habits.

  • Don't buy bottled water if your tap water is safe to drink 
  • Buy local fruit and vegetables, or even try growing your own 
  • Buy foods that are in season locally
  • Don't buy fresh fruit and vegetables which are out of season, they may have been flown in 
  • Reduce your consumption of meat
  • Try to only buy products made close to home (look out and avoid items that are made in the distant lands) 
  • Buy organic produce 
  • Don't buy over packaged products 
  • Recycle as much as possible 
  • Think carefully about the type of activities you do in your spare time. Do any of these cause an increase in carbon emissions? e.g. Saunas, Health clubs, restaurants and pubs, go-karting etc. etc...
