Zero Waste Scotland 190pxACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland has launched its first responsible consumption campaign, encouraging consumers to be “carbon savvy” when shopping. The campaign aims to educate consumers on simple ways they can tackle the climate crisis and bring to the forefront the startling fact that everything we buy, be that goods, materials or services, has a carbon cost.

Zero Waste Scotland calculates that the average Scot consumes 18.4 tonnes of materials every year. In light of these findings, Zero Waste Scotland is advocating for mindful shopping, encouraging Scots to buy smarter and adopt reuse, repair and renting behaviours as well as embracing second-hand shopping. When finished with an item, it is calling on people to dispose of items responsibly by donating, reselling or recycling.
