- Groceries: Believe it or not the types of food we eat and who we buy them from has an impact on the environment. Buying meat is a good example. Our over indulgence in meats has led to a massive meat industry that is very destructive to our sustainability. For further reading on meat industry and sustainability you can check out this National Geographic article. Be your own judge. I think Nat Geo does reputable work. Beyond meat, there are many other foods and drinks that impact sustainability. At some point we will add a list of these items and their impacts.
- Clothing: Many clothing manufacturers pollute the environment by allowing chemical run-off from the manufacturing process to leach into water systems.
- Furniture: Similar to clothing the manufacturing process for furniture can lead to chemical by-products leaching into water systems and many unwanted goods end up in landfill.
- Anything plastic: Think about all the things we buy that contain plastic. It's hard to think of many products that don't contain some sort of plastic. The actual product may not be plastic but it was likely packaged in plastic.
