Summer is in full swing and so are summer activities. Road trips, parties, camping - kids hanging out at home - it's prime time for snacking! When shopping for snacks at home, buy drinks and snacks in bulk.
We aren’t going to lie, juice boxes are extremely convenient, but unfortunately they add to the waste stream and all those tiny little straws add to the plastic problem. The boxes can be recycled - but be sure to empty them and remove the straws before you do. However it’s better to buy in bulk and serve in non-disposable cups. To take this to the next level, check out this piece from the Alliance to End Plastic Waste where they rank the top 5 most sustainable drink containers.
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect all living things seven
generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
