Responsible retail
Souvenis-shopping is most-do for most tourists, who end up with plastic bags full of tokens to take home. Plastic takes almost 1,000 years to break down; you can help the environment by refusing these bags when byuing products. Bring your own cloth carrier bags, rucksacks or beach bags when out shopping. If you have no choice but use them to carry your things around, return them to the sellers after you've packed your purchases into your luggage, so that the bags can be re-used.
