Week 28: Find a way to do without one item on your shopping list.
This week, embrace a more intentional approach to shopping and pick one item on your list that you could go without. Single-use items are an easy thing to eliminate, and you might rethink what necessary really means. Do you need an extra bottle of shampoo this week, or could you use what you have for two more weeks and then refill that bottle at a local bulk goods shop? Remember, all manufactured goods have a full life cycle of impact from the point of extracting materials from the ground, to manufacturing, transporting, using and disposing—it all adds up.
