Abstract: What is green purchasing? Every purchase you make impacts the environment in some way. Green purchasing means taking environmental considerations, rather than just price, into account when making purchasing decisions. These considerations can include: • Reducing energy and water consumption (also reduces operating costs) • Minimising greenhouse gas emissions (buy local rather than imported products) • Minimising toxic chemicals (such as cleaning products) • Reducing landfill (go for products with minimal packaging) • Buying recycled or reusable products.
