How to Reduce Packaging Waste in Your Daily Life

While it’s critical that companies do their part to reduce packaging waste, everyday folks can help out by putting a few of these simple things into practice:

Start with recycling.

This step is a no-brainer. Glass, aluminum, paper, and most plastic can be recycled. Take the time to do your part—and don't forget to get your friends and coworkers involved too.

Opt for recycled, recyclable, and/or biodegradable packaging.

When you do buy, look for these types of products. This could be purchasing peanut butter in glass jars that can be reused as cups or vases, choosing packaging made from post-consumer waste, or buying products in compostable packaging.
