    Reduce packaging waste by buying goods in bulk

    Pre-packaged items generate a lot of waste and are often more expensive than buying in bulk. Avoid items like plastic-wrapped bananas, individually wrapped prunes, and beverages in Styrofoam containers. Take the same approach when purchasing food for packed lunches. Instead of buying a pack of mini chip bags, buy a single large bag and put a portion into a small reusable container for each lunch. Buying in bulk and buying products that use recyclable, recycled, and biodegradable packaging can reduce the amount of material going into landfills. Learn more about how to buy with less packaging.

    Make sure to only buy items in bulk that you will actually use before they go bad. Overbuying can lead to increased food waste.
