Choices that help at the grocery store:

  • buy mesh bags in the produce department and use them instead of plastic for produce items. Wash them as needed and take them in with your re-usable grocery bags every time 
  • select glass bottles instead of plastic for cooking oils, salad dressings, etc. 
  • ask that the meat department put your purchases in paper instead of plastic or styrofoam 
  • don’t buy more than you can use. Strive for no food being thrown out at home.
