Making green choices is easier than a doubtful climate-change denier might think. Start in your kitchen with these 10 simple tips, and you’ll soon repent for your old, eco-unfriendly ways.
1. Bag It. Bring your own reusable tote bags to the grocery store. We like the brand EnviroSax. Its bags are lead free and BPA tested. Don’t stop there. Bring mesh sacks to bag your fruit, vegetables and herbs.
2. Befriend the Butcher. Get your meat and cheese fresh from the deli counter instead of choosing cuts wrapped in plastic and Styrofoam.
3. Bulk Up. Buying food in bulk saves you money; it also limits the amount of packaging you bring into your home. Single-serving products are wasteful and unnecessary. Buy big, then parcel food into small, reusable glass containers so you can still eat on the go.
