ZeroWaste Giveaway: Celebrate Collaboration

The Ecopiggy team is very excited to be launching our new ReThink Collaborative program!  {First of all, let’s just give a shoot out to Collaboration! Woot Woot}  ReThink was designed to bring a beautifully curated collection of TRUE GREEN products for eating on the go.  Whether it be packing your child’s school lunch, grabbing food to go at your local deli, or a beach picnic, this collection brings you solutions for plastic-free, zero-waste solutions.   And we are celebrating with a GIVEAWAY…


7 Ways to Swap Out Plastic Wrap

When it comes to preserving food, most of us have become accustomed to the easy, convenient notion of wrapping everything in plastic (and in the process, mummifying it!). Just open that top drawer in your kitchen filled with plastic baggies, aluminum foil, and most likely, a roll of ubiquitous saran wrap. With the spotlight on excess plastic waste right now, it’s no wonder that we are seeing so many innovative alternatives that help the environment and even prolong the life of our foods – a win win for all!  {Check out the discounts available for our ReThink ZeroWaste Kits!}


ECO-Inspiration

Did you know?

…that in the US, only 1% of plastic bags actually get recycled? Sadly, the rest end up in landfills or oceans. 

I’m sure you’ve been inundated by the topic of plastic shopping bags and bans, more so during this month of extra awareness! (#plasticfreejuly) It’s interesting though, that produce bags (those thin clear or green bags you pull off the roll) get left out of the conversation and they’re just as difficult to recycle or reuse. And they’re just as massive of a contributor to our trash. 


DIY Home Cleaner

The focus on “plastic-free” is in full swing during this month of heightened awareness (#plasticfreejuly). Plastic bags, straws, cups, lids, single-use everything! At Ecopiggy, we feel strongly about these issues as we continue to educate our consumers and encourage tiny changes with huge impact. Let’s zoom in on an area of your household routine that may not receive as much attention on the plastic-free front: cleaning. Yup, that dreaded task we all wish to avoid!


Dinner Dialogue Series #4

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.
