Green Consumerism

When it comes to greener choices, we wield power through the way we spend our money. Over-consumption is an issue in our world, and taking the time to really considering how much we need is a very good exercise.

Check out the Global Footprint Network to read more on how over-consumption is having an impact on our planet.

Just as importantly is making wise decisions when we do make purchases.

For general information on products, there are number of sites to check out.

  • The GoodGuide claims it “provides the world’s largest and most reliable source of information on health, environmental, and social impacts of consumer products.”
  • Consumer Reports publishes a Greener Choices guide online.

  1. Hi there 🙂

    I am just discovering the BIT site… what a wonderful initiative 🙂 Thank you!

    I live on Bowen and make pure, handmade, natural and fresh cosmetics and would love to be included in your “Green Consumerism” guide, as well as be part of the dialogue about conscious and kind choices for our selves and our beautiful community.
