Five Things in the Grocery Store that can Help You Go Green at Home

Five Things in the Grocery Store that can Help You Go Green at Home

Reducing your carbon footprint is not an easy task. There are several ways you can go green at home. One way is to support Earth-friendly products. The next time you go grocery shopping, you should be on the lookout for these products:

 

1. Reusable Coffee Cups

 

Instead of getting disposable coffee cups, you should consider getting reusable ones that are made of 100 percent food-safe silicone. They also fit in standard coffee making machines.

 

2. Recycled Toilet Tissue

 

You should also consider using toilet paper made from 100 percent recycled bamboo, sugarcane, or paper fibers. This product will save trees and water, and at the same time, lower carbon emissions.

 

3. Reusable Sandwich Wraps

 

If you pack lunch for your kids, then consider getting a reusable sandwich wrap. It is made from recycled PET bottles and helps eliminate plastic pollution. It will also save you money in the long run because you don’t need to buy single-use sandwich wraps in the future.

 

4. Reusable Shopping Bags

 

While grocery stores use paper bags instead of plastic ones, a more green approach is to use a reusable shopping bag when you go to the store. The reusable shopping bag can help eliminate waste every time you go grocery shopping.

 

5. Organic and GMO-Free Products

 

You should consider buying only organic and non-GMO products. Organic produce is more expensive and might not be suitable for your budget. If that is the case, you should consider buying products that have little to no traces of pesticides. These include onions, pineapples, sweet peas, cabbage, watermelon, sweet potatoes, grapefruit, cantaloupe, and eggplant, just to name a few. They are safe to consume even if they are non-organic.
