When making your next purchase, regardless of what it is, take a good look at the packaging. How much of tha packaging was necessary? What kinds of materials was it made out of? Check to see if the packaging is recyclable.
The best thing you can do it to buy products that don’t come in any packaging, buy direct from artists and manufacturers locally where minimal shipping packaging is necessary, or buy items enclosed in highly renewable and recyclable packaging.
