SWRC Tip - Bags
Ask store clerks not to double bag your purchases. Better yet, bring your own shopping bags to the store.
SWRC Tip - Hazardous Products
Before buying any product with hazardous symbols on it, see if there's a less or non-toxic alternative. Buy only what you need, and use it all up, or give it to someone to use.
SWRC Tip - Construction
Use wood from environmentally certified forests (such as FSC), and fast-renewable materials such as bamboo and straw. Use reclaimed materials like stone. And always think non-toxic, local, reusable, and recyclable.
