What is responsible consumption? This way you can join it!

Take a minute to think about all the natural resources that exist within your community. Now think broader and try to think of those endemic to your country. Now go a little further and enlist all the ones that our planet provides us with every day. It goes without saying that the Earth is amazing when it comes to natural resources. Sadly, we do not always use them responsibly and end up damaging the planet. How can we change this? Through responsible consumption…

What is responsible consumption? 

During the last couple of decades, consumption has grown hastily. Responsible consumption is a conscious way of choosing the products we consume every day. It is called “responsible” because as people living on Earth, we are held accountable for everything that happens to this planet. In other words, responsible consumption is buying things (or services) that meet two requirements: satisfy our needs and respect the environment. 

How can I start being a more responsible consumer?

You don’t need to go extreme and become zero-waste to become a responsible consumer. You can start by doing these little changes on a daily basis:

  • Pay more attention to packaging. Remember that not every product needs to be wrapped in plastic.
  • Do your research and shop from brands that sell sustainable products.
  • Buy with cause. Find a brand that helps a charity through your purchase. Like us!
  • Try to buy reusable products and start recycling more.
  • Don’t forget to carry an eco-bag whenever you go shopping.
  • Be coherent and stop using the products of those companies that you know aren’t complying with sustainable practices.
  • Buy second-hand or vintage clothes.
  • Support small companies by consuming local food and drinks. 

Benefits of responsible consumption

  • You make sure your money circulates into the community by consuming local products from small entrepreneurs.
  • You take care of the environment by reducing the footprint of everything you buy.
  • Reduce plastics by shopping more locally and zero-waste products.
  • Protect animals by buying from brands that are cruelty-free.
  • Save money by buying less and better.
  • Inspire people around you to buy better, consume better, and throw away better.
  • Improve your health by consuming organic and natural products. 
  • Sart valuing the non-material things in your life.
