Holidays gifts = environmental disaster?


About to wrap up another year.  Goodbye to 2018 and everything we have accomplished this year or everything we want to forget that we did!

I know what you are going to ask… and the answer is: Yes, that’s an autographed photo of Captain High Liner in the background (photo pictured on the right).  I had the honour of meeting the man himself 🙂

Too much packaging

Anyway, I bought a few holiday gifts online for my four-year old.  Pictured above are the nightmarish paper and plastic product protectors that were enclosed in the packaging boxes. Sadly the actual product only takes up a quarter of the box.  Keep this in mind when you order online (and think carbon footprint for the delivery of the package from where ever it is being shipped from).  One of my orders came from China.  I will definitely be more mindful the next time I think to order online.

REDUCE AND REUSE. And don’t buy so much. If you haven’t noticed already, everything we buy has been over-packaged (a box within a box, then plastic within the box and more cardboard, then more plastic). Our environment needs our help.
