One-third of our household waste comes from product packaging. Although some packaging is necessary for health and shelf-life reasons, some manufacturers overpackage products, which result in higher costs for consumers.
So when you shop:
Chose products without packaging or with the least wasteful packaging
Avoid single serving items and products that are overly wrapped
Buy in bulk when it's practical
