Need some Eco-friendly Grocery Shopping Tips for inspiration? ChooseCartons offers the following tips:
Pick products with less packaging.
Efficient packaging can help lessen the waste stream. Consider cartons–products packaged in cartons are an average of 94 percent product and only 6 percent packaging, providing more value and reducing unnecessary packaging.
Use reusable or renewable paper grocery bags.
Every year, Americans use approximately 1 billion shopping bags, creating 300,000 tons of landfill waste, according to the Clean Air Council. The next time you go shopping you can help reduce waste by choosing reusablegrocery bagsor renewable paper bags, which are made fromtrees, a renewableresource, and are recyclable where facilities exist.
Buy products in recyclable packaging.
Recycling is one of the easiest ways to lower your environmental impact.Products made out of paper products can be recycled (where facilities exist) to make other everyday household items like bath tissue, office paper and building materials.
Choose products with renewable packaging.
“Natural Marketing Institute data shows that 72 percent of consumers are looking for packaging made from renewable resources,” says Erin Reynolds, Marketing Director at Evergreen Packaging. “With this in mind, look for packaging made from renewable resources, such as cartons. Over seventy percent of acarton is paper, which comes from a renewable source—trees.”
