Smart purchasing mini lesson + Creative reuse!

Quick example of smart purchasing + creative reuse!

It’s always a good time to create smart purchasing habits especially when those habits are good for the Earth. Evelyn, from our education team, got together with The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation to talk about everyday smart purchasing. She displays three egg cartons, each made from a different material. Two of the egg cartons are recyclable and the other is not recyclable. Choosing to buy a product with recyclable packaging over a product with non-recyclable packaging is the smart purchase. Evelyn then takes it a step further buy suggesting to not only buy the recyclable egg carton, but to also reuse the carton for a while and then recycling it when you’re all done!
