We’ve been thinking up this idea for a little while now and we are so excited to have these available to you!
We wanted to introduce Eco Boxes as a less intimidating way to start the switch to more eco-friendly products and our hope is to keep growing and adding more items to these boxes!
SO WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO REDUCE WASTE?
Conserving Landfill Space
One of the biggest reasons we should be conscious of the waste we are creating, is to reduce the amount waste going into landfills. It’s important to decrease the need of creating more landfills which are a source of air and water pollution. According to the EPA, the average American produces 4.40 pounds of waste per day. Now think of how many people live in America…that’s A LOT of waste created every day! If we don’t decrease that number we will inevitably have to create more landfills, resulting in more pollution!
By reducing waste, we are able to conserve resources like aluminum, petroleum and trees. These resources are used to make things like plastic, cans and paper packaging.
Reduce Emission of Green House Gases
Mining, Refining and Manufacturing are responsible for emitting green house gases. By reducing waste, recycling and reusing we can build a more sustainable future and decrease the amount of green house gases being emitted. Every little step counts!
