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.
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…
This week, the Ecopiggy team invites you to participate in what we are calling “ECO-Inspirations” – small steps that you and your family can take to form new habits around eco-living. These individual steps on a household level will contribute to big change in the long run, and we find that inspiring!
We’re thrilled to welcome in all the joys of spring! Longer days, bright green landscapes, budding flowers, and Farmers Market visits are just some of the highlights this time of year. With many of the kiddos on Spring Break this week, we are are always discussing fun, eco-friendly projects that will keep families entertained either at home or on vacation.
Ecopiggy officially welcomes you – our readers, our supporters and our family – to a beautiful year ahead. We look forward to sharing reflections, recipes and eco-friendly tips as we venture through 2019 together.
