Here are 4 Easy Tips for Becoming a Mindful Consumer: 

1. Only Purchase The Things That You Need

Items including food, clothing, and personal care products are necessities. Before you make a purchase, consider if you really need an item or if it's something that would be nice to have. You might be able to borrow something from a friend, make your own version at home or find something at a thrift store instead of buying new.


2. Choose Second-Hand Whenever Possible

Purchasing second-hand items will save you money and help the planet! Shopping at garage sales, consignment shops, thrift stores, and online resale websites are great ways to participate in your local sharing economy.
