Choose a second-hand product

4 posts

Choose a product made with natural material

13 posts

For example: wood, bamboo, hemp, flax, wool, earth, straw, stone...   Impact: without ingredients derived from petrochemistry, and less energy necessary compared to transform the raw material.

Choose a product made with recycled material

4 posts

For example: notebook made of recycled paper, socks made of recycled cotton and polyester, toothbrush with handle made of recycled plastic, nails made of recycled steel...   Impact: less raw material necessary for production.

Choose a plastic-free product

15 posts

For example: metal bottle reusable for years, metal razor with butterfly clasp and replaceable blade...   Impact: without ingredients derived from petrochemistry, and less pollution of nature and living beings with plastic pieces (that take a very long time to decompose).

Choose a seasonal product

6 posts

For example: tomatoes in summer, grapes in autumn, squashes in winter, seasonal fish, seasonal cheese...   Impact: less energy necessary for its storage (and for its transport if it comes from far away).

Choose a local product

26 posts

For example: food produced locally, regional industry, local know-how...   Impact: less energy necessary for its transport, and support to local employment.

Choose an organic product

For example: vegetal calories, lentils, vegetable soup...   Impact: less water and land necessary for food production.

Consume less fossil fuel (oil, gas, coal)

12 posts

For example: car sharing consuming less per passenger, more efficient engine or boiler...   Impact: less dependence on limited resources, and less CO2 emissions.

Emit less greenhouse gas (CO2, methane)

9 posts

For example: use a bike, plant a tree, prefer companies that offset their carbon footprint...   Impact: preservation of natural functioning of the atmosphere and brake on climate warming.

Consume less electricity

9 posts

For example: more efficient radiator, tramway consuming less per passenger than electric car, solar water heater, reusable can for food, LED bulb...   Impact: less dependence on power sources, possibility for other uses.

Prefer renewable energy

1 post

For example: solar panel, wind turbine, hydroelectric generator, wood stove (emitted CO2 captured beforehand by photosynthesis), geothermal energy, tidal energy...   Impact: independence from limited resources, and without CO2 emissions or production of nuclear waste.

Protect the biodiversity (animals, plants)

9 posts

For example: beehive, haven for insects, natural reserve, sustainable forest exploitation...   Impact: preservation of valuable ''eco-services'' (wrongly considered as infinitely available and free, for example pollination, oxygen production, balance between species, climatic balance, water purification, fascinating beauty, material supply).
