Consumption

Each of us consumes goods on a daily basis, some more, some fewer. At the same time, it is important to keep in mind that production consumes resources and consumption produces waste, the amount of which is constantly growing.

The Estonian Green Movement advocates:

  • an increase in the proportion of recycled products;
  • encouraging the consumption and production of organic products, as well as fair and local production;
  • a reduction in excessive consumption and the furtherance of ideas for sustainable consumption;
  • the dissemination of environmental information to people, urging them to consider the environmental impact of their everyday purchases;
  • limiting waste generation from consumption, as well as increasing waste recycling and safe management.
