I personally always try to consider three things when thinking of buying a product for my home, myself or a loved one:
1. Do I/Does she/he really need this?
2. Has it been made locally?
3. Is its packaging recyclable?
If made in the UK, the carbon footprint will be less important than a product made elsewhere and then shipped to the UK (because the amount of CO2 emitted during the transportation of the goods). If not recyclable, then where is it going to end up? In landfills? Or incinirated?
