One if the most important point is to cut down on plastic, instead of taking plastic cutlery with you, get yourself a prepared meal from home and then will save the cost too! Stores like Tesco and Morrison’s already have schemes, they tell the customer to weigh the meat on the counter rather than putting in a the container.
Saving paper can cause a huge benefit, rather than subscribing to unwanted magazines and flyers, organize what you need and convert it into digital means. E.g. get your bills, bank statements and important stuff emailed to you.
Moreover, try being vegetarian during selective days or a week. According to the research of university of Oxford, reducing the intake of meat and dairy products can lower an individual’s carbon footprint up to 73%. It will also free the wild land lost to agriculture which is one of the main causes for mass wildlife extinction.
Doing grocery shopping online will also be quite beneficial. It may feel lethargic but it is amazing for the environment. This will prevent car journeys and linked carbon emissions by utilizing delivery vans. A lot of supermarkets also tend to offer customers a request to not use bags to be more environmental friendly.
