|Less Packaging||Buy Locally||Don't use paper OR plastic!|
Buy items that require less packaging. Not only is it wasteful, it takes more space in transportation increasing fuel consumption in that process. Buy local whenever possible. It is estimated that food travels an estimated 1,000 miles from where it is grown/produced to your plate. Support local agriculture and decrease shipping waste. Say NO to Paper and Plastic: bring your own cloth-bag to the store and re-use any bags you do get.
