Choose a plastic-free product

24 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 product made with natural material

21 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

Choose an artisan product

4 posts

For example: craft beer, handmade furniture, artisan cheese...   Impact: made in a traditional way, using high-quality ingredients.

Choose a second-hand product

7 posts

For example: tennis racket, shoe cabinet, ladder, pullover, cutlery, office chair, vase for flowers...   Impact: less material and energy necessary compared to produce the new product.

Consume less water

11 posts

For example: shower head that consumes less, more effective flush, sparing watering system, rainwater collector...   Impact: preservation of a resource that is essential for living.

Consume less meat

7 posts

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

Consume less electricity

16 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.

Consume less fossil fuel (oil, gas, coal)

19 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)

12 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.

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.

Boycott a product that degrades the planet

7 posts

For example: products causing deforestation, ocean or soil pollution...   Impact: reducing the interest for companies producing and distributing it.

Report something that could be done in a more respectful way for the planet

6 posts

Repair instead of trashing

21 posts

For example: cell phone, trousers with a hole, car part, bike, lamp...   Impact: less waste produced, and less material and energy necessary compared to replace the product.

Reuse instead of trashing

18 posts

For example: produce compost out of organic waste, find a new function to an object that was going to trash...   Impact: less waste produced, and less material and energy necessary to produce the reused thing.

Resell or give instead of trashing or keeping without using

2 posts

For example: old shelves not used anymore, books, dishes, clothes, tiles...   Impact: less waste produced, and less material and energy necessary to produce the sold or given thing.

Protect the biodiversity (animals, plants)

14 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).

Pick up waste

9 posts

For example: plastics in the sea, cans in the streets, bottles on the grass...   Impact: less contamination, and more pleasant view.

Participate in a collective action for the planet

8 posts

For example: marches for climate, demonstrations, debates...   Impact: see how many we are, and what we can do together.
