We’ve been anticipating the longer, brighter days of summer and this July 4 holiday definitely celebrates the essence of being outdoors – we’ll be enjoying picnics and BBQs, playing games, watching parades, and enjoying some downtime.
Now that summer activities are in full swing, you don’t want to forget all of those items you might need for a day’s adventures! Here at Ecopiggy, we’ve got you covered with our brand new line of string bags by ECOBAGS®, perfect for carefree family outings, travel, and shopping. We love their stylish and simple design in lots of fun colors (all naturally dyed). And yes, practicality – think machine-washable and expandable to hold up to 40 lbs!
We’re back with another ECO-Inspiration that we hope will help shift the habit around to-go beverages in this country. There has been a lot of recent media attention about plastic bags and containers (hooray to all the bans!) but another culprit of environmental degradation can be blamed on our on-the-go caffeine reliance. I was shocked to read that the US accounts for 120 billion paper, plastic and foam coffee cups each year (1/5 of the world total!) Truly devastating when you learn that 99% of it ends up as trash! Even compostable cups require oxygen to break down and our landfills are too tightly packed to help that process.
We’re on to the next round of conversations to be shared around the table! How did it go last month when we posed the topic of reusable products? What’s coming up for the kiddos, for your partner, your family, or anyone else with whom you’ve engaged?
This week’s topic takes a step back and asks you to consider what it is you’re actually leaving behind when you eat a meal on-the-go.
For our last post this month, we want to shift gears from talking about smaller scale environmental steps to broadening our conversation on a global level. What are some positive stories happening around the world that demonstrate the power of collective action?
Here is some exciting news from 2019 alone that has our Ecopiggy team motivated about what’s to come. As a company, we feel inspired to continue educating our customers and sharing quality, sustainable products that are healthy for families and for the environment. So, here we go, in no particular order…
