Argos and Sustainability
Sustainability is becoming an important part of the buying journey. People want to know the products they’re purchasing are not going to cause damage to the world around them.In fact, a study found that 71.4% of shoppers now take the environmental impact of their shopping choices into account when they purchase food and other groceries. When it comes to buying clothing and footwear, 64.2% of shoppers think about the environment. People’s gardening habits also reflect this growing trend; with another report finding that over 60% of British gardeners buy plants that will benefit wildlife, and nearly 70% buy food or provide a home for wildlife in their garden.
But who is responsible for initiating change? According to surveys, 70% of people said individuals are responsible for the future of the environment. But it’s not just down to us – 70% said manufacturers and production bodies should be accountable, as well as the national government (50%). 19% felt like celebrities and influencers could do more too.
What is sustainable shopping?
In essence, sustainable shopping is the practice of ensuring what we’re buying isn’t having a negative impact on the environment, the world’s resources and society at large.
A sustainable product isn’t just something which ticks one of those boxes, but all of them. For that reason, a lot of consideration has to go into every step of the commercial journey. That means things like:
- Ensuring raw materials are sourced from renewable and sustainable environments.
- Making sure the manufacturing process does not consist of any polluting elements, and is fair to all workers.
- Checking packaging is made from materials which won't have an impact on the natural environment when disposed of. A plastic bottle can take up to 450 years to degrade, and by 2021, we’ll be buying 1.2 million bottles every second.
- Transportation of stock is not going to result in too much carbon dioxide emissions. The average car produces 0.88kg of CO2 for every 2 miles driven. This is the same as a person will breathe out across a whole day.
All of this plays a part in sustainability efforts.
Why is sustainability important?
But why is sustainability such a big deal? There are a number of reasons why it matters:
- Protecting the environment - this ranges from the amount of pesticides used on crops to the amount of fossil fuels which are being used in the manufacturing and transportation process. 14.5% of all global greenhouse gas emissions come from production of livestock.
- Promoting health - a natural byproduct of healthier, sustainable food production is a better use of feed for animals. Removing polluting, toxic elements in their food means you'll also be ingesting less damaging products.
- Protecting the global workforce - shockingly, there are still as many as 20.9 million people who are directly affected by slavery on a daily basis. Sustainable shopping efforts help to prevent the spread of modern slavery.
- Animal welfare - around 75,000 animals are killed in testing labs across a 12-month period. Sustainable shopping looks to stop animals being tested on with dangerous chemicals.
Reducing your plastic use
It’s no surprise ‘single-use’ was named word of the year by Collins Dictionary in 2018. In that same year, it was revealed 90.5% of plastic waste that has never been recycled.
Since Blue Planet II first brought the issue into our living rooms, reducing the amount of plastic has been a priority for conscious consumers. 46% of people in the UK feel guilty about the amount of plastic we’re using.
Known as the ‘Big 4’, using reusable alternatives for drinking straws, takeaway coffee cups, plastic water bottles and plastic shopping bags is a great first step.
And it’s something we’re doing more and more. In 2019, GlobalWebIndex revealed 53% of UK consumers reported reducing the amount of disposable single-use plastic they’ve used in the past 12 months.
