Our decisions to buy or not to buy give us enormous potential power. It is not simply a question of cutting the environmental impact of the products we purchase, but also of creating, though the choices we make, a commercial climate in which manufacturers and retailers see new market opportunities in ‘green’ goods and are encouraged to invest in new products and services.

Keep speaking out and maybe you can make the difference!
