This week we have "5 Tips on Easy Ways To Go Green at Home, Work and Play"
1. Eco-friendly Shopping
Plastic takes 1,000 years to decompose and paper bags use 14 million trees a year. Instead, an easy eco-friendly tip is to use cloth grocery bags.
Purchasing your everyday products in bulk saves in multiple ways. You spend less time driving back and forth to the store, using less fuel to get there. Plus, it cuts down on packaging significantly.
3. Lunches on the GO
Use lunch boxes instead of paper bags and plastic containers for sandwiches that can be reused instead of plastic bags.
4. Go Cloth
Give up one paper napkin a day, and you’ll save a billion pounds of paper waste in landfills a year. Use cloth napkins instead
5. Buy reusable bottles
to take with you on the go, now you can refill it from a tap and avoid buying bottled water. Stainless steel is a good choice, because you don't have to worry about the potentially toxic chemicals from the plastic bottles.
