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…


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. 


Changing the world one ECOBAG at a time

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!


ECO-Inspiration: Sipping on the Go

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.


News Worth Reading!

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…
