I like to think I am a responsible consumer. It's been a process on learning and then incorporating the best practices into my life style. In my case I do small things like:

1. Not accepting plastic bags in stores.
 However where I live they look at you like a mad person if you do not want to take the bag. Also most stores have a policy that you need to take the plastic bag stapled with the receipt on it. Period. This is the third world my friends.

2. Taking my own bags to the grocery store.
I do this about 90% of the time, the 10% is because I forget the bags.

3.  Disposing  ethically of  consumed products and clothes.
Here if you want to recycle its extra work as there is no recollection system in place for recycled material. You have to clean, bag and take the plastic, glass, paper and such to recycling centers.

4. Buying second hand when possible.
Little by little thrifting has become a habit. 

5. Reusing. 
When your imagination for reuse has burnt out, try Pinterest.

6. Spreading the word, make others aware. 
I do this when talking to friends, family and also via my IG account.

7. Re thinking purchases, it's very likely you have what you need or you can borrow it ;)

Are you a responsible consumer ?
