Tips for Shopping in a More Ecological Way

In the same way that we make efforts to have a healthier and more balanced diet – maintaining concern for the environment in the process – it is also important to consider the products we put in our bodies and bring into our homes.

Making your shopping habits “greener” doesn’t have to be an Olympus challenge. Avoiding the consumption of fast fashion , investing in clothes that will last several seasons, is a good first step

Stay up to date with our suggestions to make your shopping habits increasingly ecological.

Buy less and better.

Even the most sustainable clothing uses resources and always has transportation costs to get to your home, creating some environmental impact. The root of the problem lies in our excessive consumerism (do we really need to have ten jeans ?). We tend to think that buying new clothes will make us happy, but perhaps we should reconsider the principles that underpin our lifestyle.

At the same time, because clothes have become very affordable, we no longer worry as much about their quality, which leads us to buy new clothes when the ones we have lose their shape or become less beautiful and appealing.

If we stop buying low quality items, brands will be able to improve the quality of their product. This will increase the durability of our pieces, which is great for both our wallets and the environment.

Buy seasonally.

Buying seasonal foods means we are more likely to eat locally grown foods that have not been genetically modified. And since we can all agree that the juiciest peaches appear in June and July, and the crispest apples can be found in September and October, then why not start shopping according to the seasons?

Reuse and reduce waste.

When it comes to recycling, it's not just important to emphasize the separation of cardboard or plastic. In addition to recycling, we can and should reuse, for example, our water bottle, use cloth napkins instead of paper, use rechargeable batteries, among many other simple gestures. All these behaviors, although apparently very symbolic, could make a big difference.

Always have reusable bags on hand.

Always have some reusable cloth bags in your wallet or car. So, if you need to go to the supermarket, you won't need to purchase the typical plastic bags that are sold in these stores.

Buy items from sustainable brands.

More and more fashion brands are taking into account the environmental and social impact of their production.

Although the supply is still limited – it is easier and more economical to go to the nearest shopping center to build your wardrobe – the truth is that the more we make a point of wearing sustainable clothes, the more they will be within our reach (there are Some years ago, it was also difficult to find organic foods for sale in supermarkets; today, they are already available in most stores).

Even though the prices of fast fashion brands are more attractive compared to the prices of completely ecological brands, the reality is that, if we think about the profitability of the items, sustainable products do not necessarily cost more than others, for which we pay prices too high considering their quality and durability.

Be selective in your purchases and avoid impulse buying. Choose timeless pieces and only buy what you really like.
