Even the smallest entities and individuals wield a lot of power with their purchasing dollars. Put your dollars to work creating a more sustainable future.
Choose environmentally friendly products and services
Purchase for socially aware products and services (fair trade, sweat shop free, and locally produced)
Buy recycled (It’s not recycling unless you buy recycled!)
Rent or lease instead of buying equipment
Consider group purchasing or equipment sharing arrangements
Talk with your suppliers and contractors about sustainable products, services and practices (they won’t offer them if they don’t know you are interested)
Members of the Sustainable Business Council offer a wide variety of sustainable products and services to help you in this quest.
