Try to Buy Products with Earth-Friendly Packaging

I just got off a plane, where they give you a can of pop, a plastic cup, and small, individually wrapped packets of pretzels. All of the packaging goes in the trash before the landing, and that is a lot of trash. As for me, I brought a water bottle for myself.

Try to Buy Products with Earth-Friendly Packaging

When you choose what to buy, you are choosing which packaging you buy too. Unlike the products you are buying, which you will use or eat or wear or whatever you want to do with them, the packaging usually goes straight into the trash - or at best, the recycling.

In addition to reducing the packaging you buy, see if you can reuse it for some other purpose. For example, you can use boxes things come in for mailing packages.
