Choose products with less packaging, 1341°

Products now seem to be wrapped in so much packaging.

The sum of all the needless plastic used to package products and food in particular must be mind-boggling. If we make an effort to choose goods that use less packaging, maybe we can make a difference!

This is a great idea - is there any way to force companies to use less though?

A little mindfulness, an easy action, a good example, viral progress.

Once you get in the habit I'm amazed at how guilty I feel when I buy something with lots of packaging.

Matthew W., Writing to companies helps. Letters are better than emails. If you write, usually you'll get an answer. Encouraging your friends to write works too.

We can't expect companies to change if they don't know we give a rats about what they do.

Like John says. Vote with your dollars. Then tell them why!

"Dear Mr Ty Coon. I considered buying product X from your store but chose not to because of its excessive packaging, deceptive labelling, etc etc. ...."

I get a great satisfaction bellying up to the bulk fook section and filling my re-used plastic containers for the umpteenth time! It was pretty easy to reduce the amount of packaging on my products once I realized how stoooooopid it was to buyt triple-wrapped, safety-sealed containers of honey. Good grief!

We are turning into a plastic world! Boycott plastic bags and all other useless plastic items. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

in July 2008

I've been doing this for 20 years now, although it's only recently companies are taking any notice. If I like a product or company that uses too much packaging I usually get in touch to let them know this and that if they make a change that I'll go back to them.

As for plastic bags, these are ruining the beauty of some countries, such as Papua New Guinea - the cities and countryside are absolutely littered with them and wildlife are suffering because of the enormity of it.

This action speaks louder than most people think. The dollar is a powerful thing and it's good to use it to spread the word that more packaging is less fun for everyone.

I've become virtually plastic-bag free over the last 2 years. Any time an organization gives away a canvas bag, I grab one. You don't even need to buy new ones. There are lots of nice small glass containers to store leftovers and take food to work for lunch (safer to microwave your food, too). You don't need the plastic wrap or the little plastic containers you can purchase for the same purpose.

Also available are biodegradeable dog waste bags! Relatively inexpensive.

I undertake lifecycle assessment work for food and beverage products.....just finished a wine LCA and if you buy a NZ wine in the UK that has a heavy bottle (what we in the trade call grand burgundy) it is likely that the packaging of that wine will make up around 50% of the LCA carbon emissions.......incredible.

This weekend my husband and I are going to review our diet and make plans for bulk purchases as well as making more food at home - especially dairy products. These produce the most waste in our waste stream as we cannot find anything that is not packaged in plastic.

I have been using recycled products for the last many years and have not received any ambiguity among them. Then why people fear to not to use the recycled products to go green. Most of the people are in the habit of making their home or offices Green and are searching for some Green products which exactly help in Green Environment. From all the green objects mentioned in here http://www.gtrecycling.com/faq/environment/10-green-gadgets-for-everyday-usage/ I like Hand-Powered Espresso Maker the most.

Everyone is concerned about the Ebola virus these days and rightly so. According to the World Health Organization, the virus infecting and killing people in West Africa is the worst recorded outbreak. Some things that can be done to help control the Ebola crisis would be to deploy more health care workers and open new treatment centers in those countries that are affected the most.
