Responsible
Consumption
and Production

Humans consume a lot. Whether water, food, or energy, it also means that we produce a large amount of waste. Achieving Goal 12 requires all of us to consume fewer single-use plastics, recycle and reuse what we can, and consider buying only sustainably-sourced products.
