Today’s consumer is more aware of the environment than ever before. However, there is always room for improvement. While many people recycle waste products, it is also important to be cognizant of eco-friendly alternatives that can help to reduce waste.
Online Scratch Cards
Since they first came on the scene in the 1970’s, scratch cards have been extremely popular as a way in which to gamble. Made of paper, users simply needed either a key or coin to scratch the foil on the card to determine if they won or not. While paper cards can still be purchased, many environmentally conscious gamblers are not opting for electronic versions of these cards which can be found on sites listed on gamblinginsider.ca for example. Rather than a coin or key, a mouse is use to reveal the hidden symbols.
Reusable Sandwich Bags
When packing a lunch for work or for school, plastic bags are a convenient way to store food. Some lunches even may have several plastic bags. Consider how many lunches are packed in a week, the amount of plastic waste mounts and is unable to be recycled. Instead consider purchasing reusable sandwich wraps which are made from recycled plastic bottles. These are durable and can reduce pollution.
Electronics manufacturers are also getting on board by looking for ways in which to design their products that significantly reduce one’s carbon footprint. Iameco is one company that is creating laptops and computer accessories that have been constructed of reused material. The manufacturing process is also conducted in an environmentally responsible manner helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
