Manufacturers know that flashy packaging translates into increased sales, but Much of this packaging is unnecessary. There’s a ton of material we continue to schlep home when shopping — the cellophane, unrecyclable bags, plastic, and cardboard used in the packaging of many common items. A fantastic, and such an easy eco-friendly action for most of us to take is to carrying our own reusable shopping bags to the grocery store when we goes to shop

As consumers, there are a number of items we can use or purchase in order to reduce our consumption of excess packaging here are 15 Ways to Reduce Food Packaging:

  1. Bring a travel mug whenever you go to your favorite coffee shop. Many cafes will fill your mug at no additional charge, eliminating the need for those one-use styrofoam cups with plastic lids.
  2. Use a reusable, stainless steel drinking bottle instead of individual drink boxes or bottles.
  3. Buy fresh fruits and vegetables instead of produce in cans, frozen boxes and bags.
  4. Buy in bulk, using your own containers from home to eliminate the use of can, carton, and plastic bag packaging.
  5. 5. Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins.
  6. Buy big boxes of cereal instead of individually packaged cereals.
  7. Never buy individual “snack-sized” boxes or bags.
  8. When washing non-bagged greens, use a salad spinner. That way you won’t have to use paper towels to blot the greens dry.
  9. Buy quarts of yogurt instead of eight-ounce or smaller cups.
  10. Use cloth or a gold coffee filter rather than paper filters.
  11. Buy bulk cheese instead of individually wrapped slices.
  12. Make your own popsicles using reusable molds, rather than buying boxed popsicles. Be sure to use BPA-free molds.
  13. Use metal and ceramic baking pans instead of aluminum disposable pans.
  14. Use loose tea instead of one-use tea bags.
  15. DIY, green cleaning products instead of commercial cleaning products. Care2 is a great resource for recipes for these easy to prepare recipes, from window cleaner to furniture polish.
