It’s amazing how far we’ve come in the past decade or so when it comes to the environment. We are all taking steps every day to make the world a better place, whether we make an attempt to, or just do it out of habit. And things are only getting better.
Check out this Sun Chips bag that will decompose on its own!
After about 14 weeks, Sun Chips bags will disappear. Can you imagine?! I look at the ditches along the road and there is so much trash. Wouldn’t it be great if it would all just disappear on its own? Maybe someday it will. This is a big step in the right direction and I hope all food makers hop on board.
Granted it’s still a year away, but it’s exciting to see companies becoming more earth friendly.
Aquafina also recently released a new bottle design that uses 50% less plastic than it did in 2002. With that, along with flavored water coming in powder packs, we can cut down on the number of bottles, and amount of plastic, thrown out or recycled.
Lets not forget about the compact fluorescent light bulbs that use 75 percent less energy and lasts about 10 times longer than the ‘old’ style light bulbs. And, Hybrid cars getting 40+ miles per gallon! Being green actually saves us money!
Stores are doing their part too by providing re-usable grocery bags as opposed to paper or plastic. I’ve also heard of some stores charging for plastic now. Our Target store even has all the freezer lights on motion detectors. That way, when no one is around, they turn off to save electricity.
It seems that everyone is coming together to do something to be more Earth friendly. We can all change the world by changing small things. Whether you’re doing it to save money, to save the environment, or just because, every little bit helps.
And for that, Thanks!
