Think Before You Buy! (Organised by the Eco-Congregation Scotland Stirling Network)

September 21 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Eco-Congregation Scotland Stirling Network invite you to join them for an evening of discussion. 

Everything we buy has a carbon cost #ConsumingResponsibly

Every time we shop for anything, be that a new laptop, lamp or loofah, we are heating the planet and using up its scarce resources. Around 80% of our carbon footprint in Scotland comes from the products and services we buy and use.  Zero Waste Scotland is calling on Scots to consider #ConsumingResponsibly with a new campaign that has been launched to show how climate change is linked to how we consume, highlighting that everything we buy has a carbon cost. Recent research showed that many people know they can reduce their carbon footprint by taking fewer flights but only one-fifth were aware of how buying new products contributes to climate change. Everyone can make small changes right now to reduce their carbon footprint such as buying things that last, choosing to reuse or repair items and making sure they are recycled when it’s possible.

Come along for a Zoom discussion on Wednesday 21st September at 7.30pm with Miriam Adcock from Zero Waste Scotland and to hear about how the things we buy have an impact on the environment and the simple alternatives we could all consider. Could we shop differently and still enjoy the finer things in life without the impact on our planet?

Wednesday 21st September 2022 at 7.30pm via Zoom.
