Reduction Tips
  • GO BOX-LESS!
    Choose products with minimal packaging. Many convenience items create more waste than the economy size. Buying in bulk can help you get the biggest bang for your buck.
  • SELL OUT!
    Have a garage sale, donate to a local charity thrift shop, or post items online.
  • SAY NO TO WRAP!
    Give gifts of time, services, or home-baked goodies this year! For kids, try a membership to a zoo or museum.
  • EAT IN!
    Resist the fast food solution. Keep a few easy-to-make dinner ideas handy. Make double portions and freeze the rest for later.
  • BLOCK JUNK MAIL
