Reuse bags at the store – If you bring in plastic bags from your next grocery run, reuse your bags for garbage. For a greener choice, ask for paper bags or bring your own cloth bags to the supermarket.
Strip down the products you use – Look for simply packaged items that use the least amount of materials that could fill up landfills
Do not purchase plastic bottles – Avoid buying water and opt for tap water that you carry in a glass bottle with a silicon sleeve for safety. This will reduce a number of plastics and greatly reduce the amount of BPA and other chemicals you consume.
Choose organic – Since organic food uses fewer chemicals and is safer on the environment, cook with good quality organic fruits and vegetables.
Try to purchase locally grown produce – If you purchase locally, you reduce the transportation energy usage.
Eat a lot of what you buy – Wasting food you purchase ends up in landfills. This is a waste of a country’s resources and energy.
Eat foods raw – Eating fruits and vegetables raw, is a good way to save energy and stay healthy.
