To continue our conversation around packaging and to answer the question about what is the best packaging.. The best packaging is no packaging at all!

The lowest impact is zero consumption.

While we know that is not practical for e v e r y t h i n g I mean we are human and we do have to live! It is practical to be more MINDFUL when making purchases. 

Before you whip out your card or your phone to tap, here are some important questions to ask yourself:

1. DO I ACTUALLY NEED THIS?

Consider what you are buying and think to yourself - what part of this purchase will eventually end up in a landfill?!

If the answer is Yes.. then ask yourself a few other questions:


  • Can I use something I already own?
  • Can I purchase this item second hand?
  • Can I borrow this from a friend?

The best option is to simply R E D U C E our consumption. 

i.e. BUY LESS. Whether it is food on the go, single use items, clothing, fashion, accessories, shoes, food products, cosmetics, etc etc. 

 

Next we will share some ideas for your everyday needs that have no packaging at all!
