Day 19: Use your voice!


How do you have any power as a consumer ?

We consumers have the loudest voice to influence business behaviour. Even a small boycott could have a great impact on a company and its image. Do you have an opinion on how a company could be more sustainable? Use your voice and let them know!

Next time you are enjoying your favourite plastic-wrapped product and mindlessly reading the packaging, look for the company’s number on the back and give them a ring.

“I LOVE your product, but I will not be buying it anymore because it’s packaged in plastic. Please do your part for the planet and find an alternative packaging option so I can keep enjoying your product!”

It might not be effective right away but if many of us voice our concerns for unsustainable products, we have the best change of creating change.
