Reduce

  • Say no to disposable shopping bags and bring a Mixed Bag Designs reusable bag instead

  • Buy items in bulk like shampoo and laundry detergent (larger economy-size products or ones in concentrated forms use less packaging and usually cost less per ounce)
  • Avoid over-packaged goods and purchase items in bins when available
  • Use a dish cloth or cloth napkins instead of paper

  1. Great ideas and tips! Recycling helps us to cut expenses! But we shouldn’t do it, just because of the material profit. It needs to be turned into a habit we include in our daily responsibilities!
