Ditch disposable items

Swap out disposable napkins, grocery bags, and straws for reusable options instead.

Give composting a try

Composting is a great way to reduce waste and cultivate a balance of nutrients to help your plants thrive.

Shop for environmentally responsible products

Buy from companies that package their products in environmentally friendly ways.

Reuse and upcycle

Before disposing of or recycling an item, consider its repurposing potential. One way is donating to and shopping from thrift stores, which also helps support your local community.

Stretch your dollar further by investing in high-quality items
