There are plenty of shops where you can buy all things sustainable and eco friendly. Start with something simple like switching to refills of shampoo or shower gel or go plastic free with shampoo bars.
Remember to always bring your own bags and try and buy loose fruit and veg, more and more places are becoming plastic free.
Thinking about buying something new? Check out adverts.ie, donedeal.ie or gumtree.ie, they are a great resource for nearly new items with half the price tag. On eBay looks for clothes ‘with tags’ that haven’t been worn.
Popping out for lunch? Bring your own containers with you. Plenty of places (like chopped.ie) will be happy to accomodate you - start a trend in your office.
