We all want a safe and healthy present and future for our descendants – our children but to get there we need to take actions. Thousands of little actions will help build that world that we want for them. Reusing bags and containers instead of getting new packaging each time you shop will help build that foundation for a vibrant future. Remember your bags!
Earth’s General Store is moving into our next evolution. April will see us dramatically reduce the use of single-use plastic bags in our store. AS of May 1st, 2019 we will not offer single-use plastic produce bags and plastic bags for people to fill up from our bulk products.
Edmonton’s Earth’s General Store is leading the way when it comes to reducing waste from plastic packaging. For over 27 years they have offered refilling for many products and over the past few years, they have expanded their offerings. People are embracing a plastic reduced lifestyle and shopping experience. This is part of our War on Waste.
We vote every day with our dollars of the kind of world we want. A significant portion of our Boreal forests is cut down to make toilet paper to be flushed down the toilet. There is a better option. You can choose toilet paper that uses recycled fiber content. This supports our recycling efforts and reduces the pressure on forests.
