Friday's Eco-tip

Avoid products that are packaged for single use (i.e., drinks, school lunches, candy, cat and dog food, etc.). Instead, buy in bulk and transfer the products to your own reusable containers. Many health food stores have bulk bins where they sell everything from grains to cereal to cleaning products.

Try to avoid any small packaging. Ironically, the smaller the package, the greater the waste.

the smaller the packaging the higher the price per lb or oz or piece. we pay more for convenience, and to clutter up our landfills.
good one sean. I will take this one to heart as well.
