Suppliers, builders and tradespeople
Many DIY stores and builders merchants are now stocking at least some sustainable products, such as energy saving light bulbs, FSC timber, natural paints and wood treatments, and natural insulation products. By asking them if they stock what you need, even if they cannot provide it, your question may encourage them to do so.
