3 Eco-Friendly Resolutions to Make This Year
Let's be honest—we all want to do our part to take care of the Earth. But, "going green" can be an overwhelming concept. Where do you start? Is it all or nothing? We say, "No!"
Going green doesn't have to be all or nothing, and it doesn't have to mean completely changing your lifestyle. Every little bit helps, and we want to help you get started with 3 resolutions you can make in 2016 that will make an impact.
1. Reduce Your Food Waste: Did you know that 30-50% of food bought at the grocery store ends up in a landfill? Reduce your carbon footprint by buying local produce, and making your own meals and snacks instead of reaching for convenience foods. There's no factory producing greenhouse gases needed, no plastic containers sent to the landfill. And when you're ready to eat on-the-go, fill your Little Green Pouches, which you can reuse 50+ times!
2. Go Green at Lunch: Between Lunchables, juice boxes, disposable food pouches, and Ziploc bags, waste from traditional lunch boxes are filling our landfills. But it doesn't have to. Grab an easy to clean, super cute, reusable lunch box (we love the bento box style), a set of Little Green Pouch reusable food pouches, and you've got what you need to make eco-friendly lunches for the whole family. Fill the lunchbox compartments with your favorite healthy, fresh meats, cheeses, fruits and veggies, or leftovers from dinner. Add a Little Green Pouch filled with a smoothie, yogurt, salad dressing, dipping sauces, or homemade applesauce, and you have a no-waste, healthy, delicious lunch for school or the office.
3. Go meatless one day a week:
Did you know it requires 2,500 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef? Going meatless once a week can also help reduce our carbon footprint and save precious resources like fossil fuels and fresh water. The Meatless Monday website
is a great resource with more benefits of going meatless for you and the environment.
