BOOK: Climate Change: Simple Things You Can Do to Make a Difference
1. Buy locally grown food, in season, from your local markets and farm stands. Reduce your food miles — avoid food that has travelled a long way to reach you.
2. Buy organic if possible: organic food and clothing will have been grown without the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides.
3. Buy furniture made from natural timber that has come from a sustainable source. Look for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) symbol.
4. Buy the most energy-efficient household appliances.
5. Plan your shopping so that you do as much in one trip as possible.
6. Use a bike or the bus for your shopping trips where possible.
7. Share a car — shop with a friend.
8. Buy secondhand whenever you can.
9. Buy goods that will last.
10. Buy less!
