How Big Is Your Shopping Footprint? (Environmental Footprints)
What sort of footprint are you leaving on the environment? Do you have a heavy footprint or a light footprint?
Everything we do and everything we use has an impact on the environment.
Heavy footprints harm the environment and use lots of natural resources.
Light footprints harm the environment as little as possible and use fewer natural resources.
Read the ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINTS series to decide what type of footsteps you want to take in the future!
In How Big Is Your Shopping Footprint? read about what makes up a shopping footprint and the effect this has on the environment. Discover ways to reduce your shopping footprint and live sustainably.
Rethink! feature offers way to lighten your footprints
