If you haven't already, invest Ez Battery Reconditioning Review in a good number of reusable shopping bags. I try to keep at least 4 in my car at all times so I don't have to choose between paper or plastic. If you do have to choose plastic, stash it until you get a bundle then drop it off at the recycle bin in most supermarkets. Paper bags get recycled in my house as coloring paper, place mats for messy projects and book covers. In fact, plastic packaging of all kinds is a major energy cost and when I am shopping for something I try to choose items that are not excessively packaged. Buying a concentrated laundry detergent in a cardboard box rather than a plastic jug is a little less cost for the environment. Our consumer choices do get noticed.While some cities provide different colored containers for different recyclable materials, if your town doesn't, take a trip to your local dump and discover what they recycle. We have a bin each for aluminum cans, plastic and glass bottles in the garage. Paper and cardboard can be stacked as well. The kids know where the soda can goes and dad knows where the empty wine bottle goes. Once a month we drive to the dump and end up getting paid for our recycling efforts. This, plus our compost bucket cuts down our household garbage so much, that even with a family of 6, we rarely fill our small garbage can. Little changes make a big difference.Driving a fuel efficient car can save you money and save the planet from global warming. But reducing all driving is also important. Consider car pooling, ride sharing to work, and shopping with a friend. Every Saturday morning a girlfriend and I share the ride to our local Farmers Market. We try to save on gas by combining trips and plotting our errands in a giant loop. I always try to buy organic, but when I discovered that organic food in the grocery store travels about 3,000 miles before it reaches my store, I was horrified. This probably negates the carbon saving of buying organic. The problem is that food is required to first go to a distribution center before it is shipped out to individual stores. So, apples grown in Seattle may have to be trucked to Atlanta before they get shipped back to your local store in Seattle! Ironically, non-organic foods are shipped an average of 1,000 miles before they get to your store. However, your veggies at the farmers market, are local - a huge carbon saving and fresher than store bought by about 2 weeks. https://nomorescamreviews.com/ez-battery-reconditioning-review/
