Happy New Year! It's 2017 and time to look at how we can make our shopping trips more Eco friendly to the planet.
From the "Form Healthy Habits" website:
Opt for Reusable Products
Reusable products are less likely to end up in landfills, reducing
your impact on the environment. Plus, despite their upfront cost being
slightly higher, this type of product will save you money in the
long-run. Ditch the paper plates, plastic cups, and disposable grocery
bags and opt for reusable items instead.
Look for Recyclable Packaging
You can, of course, make your shopping trips greener by looking for
products packaged in recyclable or reusable packages. As far as
recycling goes, take a look at the packages you are buying and look for
the “recyclable” icons on the plastic or can– then make sure you
actually remember to recycle when you're finished with the product. In
terms of reuse, glass jars and plastic containers can be used to store
buttons, craft supplies, and even leftovers. All you have to do is make a
conscious effort to buy things you can work with instead of things that
will simply be thrown away.
