6 ways to shop more sustainably

Sustainable shopping does not need to be complicated. If you take into account just a few things, you can reduce your ecological footprint significantly:

sustainable shopping

Regional

Support local farmers and reduce your carbon footprint!

Seasonsal

Seasonal produce tastes much better and contains more vitamins than vegetables from energy-intensive glasshouse production.

Organic

Organic products are subject to stricter controls and policies e.g. on pesticides.

Meat-free Monday

Meat production is a significant part of global CO2 emissions. Already one meat-free day per week is a significant contribution to the protection of the environment.

Farm fresh

Farmer’s markets not only provide a platform for local farmers, it is also hard to find plastic packaging there.

Sustainable supermarkets

More and more supermarkets implement emission reducing measures. There might be one near you, it’s worth asking.
