Before booking into these innovative grassroots activities, you could visit their website where you can download a terrific detailed supermarket buying guide – pocket-sized – plus the Sustainable Living Directory.
“Consumers, are realising that a “cheap” buy is often not a “good” buy. The real cost of an item is often unseen, involving issues such as labour conditions and fair trade, energy and transport used, raw materials and production processes, packaging and wastes produced. All things that affect us and our planet in the long term, if not the short.”
Food miles, genetic engineering, multinational ownership, packaging…
Join us to find out more about the products, companies and related issues that are part of your weekly supermarket shopping adventures.
