Lately I have resolved to consume products with recyclable packaging or packaging that I can put to later use personally. I am paying attention to boxed items such as cereal and crackers to assure that those manufacturers are using %100 post consumer recycled paper in their packaging and then returning those packages to our own paper recycling bin. I have tried whenever possible to avoid plastic containers. We buy our milk in glass, returnable bottles. Plastic deli containers are saved and re-used for leftovers. I carry my own cloth grocery bags. My goal is to eventually never buy another plastic item unless it is %100 recyclable. Although glass containers are recyclable, I have tried lately to find alternate uses for used glass containers. We often use large jars as drinking glasses and this lovely juice bottle has been repurposed as a home brewed ice tea decanter. A new label and a fancy lid cover make it quite attractive. Next time you grocery shop, think about what you are buying. Can it's packaging be recycled, or repurposed?
