"Buy products with as little waste packaging as possible and buy the family-sized packages even if it's for just one or two people in your household. You'll not only send less waste to landfills, but save money! Also, turn down extra napkins or paper products you don't need in the school or work cafeteria, or at fast food restaurants. Additionally, if your school or workplace uses styrofoam, see what you can do to show them the advantages of the more biodegradable paper alternatives. You could also take a reusable water bottle to work or school and put your drinks in it."
