- Choose free-range and organic animal products. When purchasing meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy, look for food raised in an environment that supports the ethical treatment of animals.
- Look for fair-trade labeling on products: When you purchase from a fair-trade organization, you're participating in a business model that promises a fair price to the farmer, promotes sustainable farming practices, and contributes to positive change in small, often rural and underprivileged communities.
- Avoid extra packaging. Whenever possible, choose minimally packaged food products, buy in bulk and bring your own containers. Look for products that are packaged with recycled paper or bio-based plastic.
