Green Grocery Shopper

Many of you are now more conscious when it comes to choices when doing the grocery shopping. B.Y.O.B. has taken on a greater meaning–Bring Your Own Bag!

Some others are all for being more eco-conscious, but when it comes right down to the details, forget that there are some better choices that can be made.

Here are some questions to ask yourself the next time you are in the grocery store:

1. Is it local? if not look for next best
2. Is it in glass/plastic?
3. If it is in plastic, do I absolutely need it or is there an alternative? Try using your own bags/compostable or cloth for produce.
3. Is it non-GMO
4. Is it certified organic
5. Do I really have to buy water?  Installing filters (RO) or using a Berkey Filter is using our own resource, is more cost effective, and is better for the environment in the long run.

Here are some great resources to help with your Green Shopping:

Just give it some time and with practice you will get used to a newer way of shopping and your kids will benefit for years to come!
