Send Your Packaging Packing
Too much packaging, wrapping, padding and stuffing comes with most products today. Most of it isn't necessary and is really just a way for companies to advertise. The worst part is that a lot of packaging isn't recyclable in your Blue Box!
Take a look at the things you buy - is there an alternative with less packaging or recyclable packaging?
For example, you can buy food in bulk stores to avoid food packaging.
Avoid products with excessive packaging, or non-recyclable packaging, or Change what you buy to avoid packaging and tell us about it
