At the shops

Shopping is perhaps the easiest way to make a difference. We're always thinking while we're in the aisles anyway; why not think about the resourceful impact of your choices. We've all gone through the usual questions while we're handling a tin of beans; what should I make tonight? Will the children eat this? Is this good value? Try asking yourself the following questions as well; Do we really need this much? Can this product or its packaging be reused or recycled? Is there a recycled alternative?
