Making sustainable choices when shopping can be difficult. Whatcom County Tourism just posted this great article about sustainable clothing and The Ragfingery Shop in Bellingham. What a cool resource for us!
We’ve found this resource from the World Wildlife Fund to help inform your decision making.
The good news is that as consumers buying in Canada and the United States, we hold considerable power. We can change our decisions and influence others. Our choices can even inspire fundamental shifts in manufacturing. The choices we make at the checkout can have a significant impact on future sustainability.
As with all sustainable questions, there isn’t one straight-forward answer. As we find more resources on shopping, we’ll add more tools for you to consider when you are making buying decisions.
