4) Practice awareness for every purchase
Next time you go shopping try to pay real attention to what you buy. Question the manufacturers packaging methods; is it necessary? Did they use excessive packaging? Can it be recycled? If you feel that the manufacturer did use excessive packaging ask yourself if you really need this product ~ is there something else you could buy instead that would be a better option?
