How to Save Energy When Shopping  

How to Save Energy When Shopping  

 

Have you realised that you can save a lot of energy by the choices you make when you go shopping? Many customers do not check the origin of the goods they buy, but if you did, you would learn that a lot of food and other items travel hundreds of kilometers before they get to us. Imagine how much energy must be used for their transport, but you do have a choice. 

First off, buying local products is so much better than ordering products from Amazon. Products from Amazon usually need to travel a really long way to be delivered to your home; for example, it usually has to be shipped overseas and then also driven to your house. Both transporting vehicles use fossil fuels. This releases CO2 in the air, polluting the world even more. But when buying local products, you save so much energy and you cut a huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions and when talking about food, it is fresh and of a better quality. It is simple. Avoid buying food transported from the other end of the world or even the other end of Europe.  

Also, when going shopping, walk there or go by bus and also try to stop using your car when travelling to places. Using a local bus helps save so much energy. It brings us one step closer to getting rid of global warming. Otherwise take a tram and easily travel to your destination with a couple of stops on the way. This way, you might even be able to avoid traffic. Everyone says they want to help cut greenhouse gas emissions but end up not changing anything about their lifestyle. Now you can. With a step on the bus or tram to a local store, you can make a difference and help reduce greenhouse gases in the world. You can make an impact on the world you are living in.
