use coffee bags instead of plastic bags for bulk buys.

today we will

use coffee bags instead of plastic bags for bulk buys.
WHY Bags we put ground coffee beans in are usually made from paper and not lined w/ plastic. We will reduce plastic waste by using them instead of plastic bags for bulk.

HOW When we forget our reusable bags for buying bulk, use a coffee bag, usually found near the bulk section of the food store, instead of a plastic produce bag.

opt for lip balm in tins rather than sticks.

today we will

opt for lip balm in tins rather than sticks.
WHY Plastic tubes that hold lip balm sticks can't be recycled as easily as most plastic. Less than half get recycled. We will reduce plastic waste by opting for tins instead.

HOW Next time we need to repair chapped winter lips, we can grab a tin of lip balm instead of a tube. Burt's Bees makes this one that is usually sold at major pharmacies.

consider biodegradable soaps.
WHY Chemicals in our soap end up in our oceans. These chemicals contribute to dying coral reefs and more. We will save aquatic life by choosing biodegradable.

HOW We can check the label of soaps in a store, if it's biodegradable it will usually say so. Or google "biodegradable soap" to see what's out there.
