We value the health of the environment and understand there are many factors to consider when choosing to be “eco-friendly”. Plastic can be recyclable but not all cities are equipped with the facilities. Plastics that don’t make it to the re-cycle end up somewhere on this planet taking lifetimes to break down.
On the other hand, paper seems to be the attractive option because it’s biodegradable. Yet, consider the manufacturing process from forest to sheet.
Trying to choose the most earth-friendly option is a daunting task. For now, we try to reduce our plastic consumption whenever possible, reuse packaging material, and look for paper products with post-consumer content. We strive to educate ourselves and support companies who are mindful about their footprint.
We'd love to hear any earth-friendly ideas and suggestions that you have
