Guiding Principles to becoming a Sustainable Food Shopper

Becoming a more sustainable consumer means being responsible about the products you buy. This includes considering the source of your food, the packaging and the processes involved in delivering it to your shopping basket. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right information and so compromise is always a part of the decision-making process.

If you are able to change just one habit in your shopping, you are already becoming a more responsible consumer, and making a contribution to environmental sustainability.

The first step to shopping sustainability is to reduce unnecessary consumption. In NSW, 40% of the average household garbage bin is filled With food waste each week. Ask yourself the question "do I really need it?" and you may find yourself saving money, as well as reducing your impact on the environment.

Food is a product we do need everyday. That is why we all share the responsibility for what is produced. Remember, you can vote with your wallet!

Here are five simple principles that will help you make more sustainable choices for you, your family, your community and the environment.

Principles to consider:

1. Eat Local 2. Eat In-Season 3. Love Food, Hate Waste 4. Eat Organic Produce 5. Eat Less Meat
