How to Cut Down on Waste: Be Careful What You Buy
Most packaging-plastic, foam, paper-from boxed items ends up in landfills. Instead of purchasing cereal in cardboard boxes and plastic, for example, consider buying it at a bulk-food store where you can bag your own items. It’s a great way to cut down on waste. Shopping online means a lot of packaging (clothes, shoes, etc.). If you do shop online, try to purchase everything at the same time so you only have to deal with the excess materials once.
