(Author of Random Act of Kindness) Brenda Knight has another eco-friendly suggestion for saving our planet.
*Jars. So many jars. For salads, soups, sauces, juice, opened packages of things. Justy jars. Lots of jars. *Aluminum foil is a great stand-in for plastic wrap and can be easily recycled or saved for reuse. *Wax paper is great for wrapping sandwiches. So are reusable sandwich pouches you can make or purchase. Many close with velcro and are easy to launder or wipe clean. *Reuse empty yogurt, sour cream, or cream cheese containers. You’ve already got them and you have to wash them before tossing them into the recycling bin anyway, so you may as well use them again.
*Invest in reusable lunch containers like bento boxes or tiffins to avoid waste hen sending off your little one (or yourself) with a bagged lunch.
