This guest post was written by Sarah Murray
Use low wattage bulbs
Stock environmentally friendly products
Print on demand
Implement reusable carrier bags

If you still stock plastic bags in store, consider charging a small fee for them to encourage customers to bring their own. Alternatively, offer an incentive to those who do bring their own bags, you could give a stamp for every time they bring their own bag and when they collect a certain number they can have a small gift or a percentage off their next purchase.
