Going Green at the Grocery
It’s been a while since I last updated!
So, over the week I have been to the grocery store a lot since I was gone for a week on spring break. What I have come to notice was that there is so much there that has to do with going green!
First, the deli. A lot people are buying lunch meat in gladwear containers rather than from the deli. This is a great way of conserving because you are getting a reusable container every time you buy lunch meat. This way you are not using the throw away plastic bags. Then better yet, once you do decide to throw the container away, they are recyclable!
And for those of you keeping clean, buy going green cleaning products. Clorox has its own line of eco-friendly products. You can also buy all purpose cleaner in refillable bottles. This way you do not have to always buy it with a new sprayer and bottle. Then, once you fill up your sprayer bottle, you can recycle the other!
Finally, at check out grab a reusable grocery bag for a dollar. Wal-Mart, Kroger and Meijer all sell them. This way you are reducing the plastic bags used. At Target when you use a reusable bag they take 5 cents off your purchase for every reusable bag you have. However, the bag must be purchased at Target.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
