Eco Monday Shopping Rules

  1. Buy only what you need. Impulse buying often ends up being wasteful.
  2. Find out where the item will be shipped from. You might be able to buy an option from a closer location.
  3. Look for quality. Items should last a long time. Think about the end-of-life of each product you buy. 
  4. Consider experiential gifts (which can usually be purchased online). 
  5. Ask your loved ones for wish lists - this will reduce the likelihood of returns after the holidays. 
  6. Look for green/environmentally themed gifts to spread the message of climate change awareness.
