One of the most important ways you can demonstrate your commitment to a more sustainable lifestyle is by thinking about what you buy and consume. Almost everything we do in our lives involves products or services that have consumed energy to be made or transported, thus emitting carbon dioxide and causing climate change.
By choosing locally produced products with less packaging, things with higher recycled content and fewer harmful chemicals, you are not only reducing your impact on the environment, but you are also letting retailers and service providers know that you are one of the growing number of people who care about their resource use and what they purchase.
We at the BPA are currently finalising our Sustainable Procurement Policy to ensure that the products and services we buy as an organisation are ethically and environmentally sound. From sourcing recycled paper, to contracting local service providers, you’ll see more environmentally sound products and services at the Bath preparation camp than ever before.
We can have a huge positive impact by aiming to live and consume in a 'sustainable' way. What's more we won't just make a difference by our own lifestyles, but also from the influence we have on others.
