🌱 Say no to plastic
Did you know that plastic degrades in quality when recycled and can only be recycled once or a handful of times? When you are shopping bring reusable bags, choose products that don't have any packaging or products with sustainable packaging like glass, which can be recycled endlessly.
Recycling is great but reusing is even better! Before you toss that packaging, see if there is any way for you to reuse it. Many companies have zero-waste programs, like our Glass Bottle Refill Program which allows you to trade in your milk bottle for a discount off of your next purchase.
🌱 Cut out dairy
Reducing or eliminating animal products like dairy from your diet could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 73%. And if you want to be a superstar get on team oat milk, we use fewer emissions, limited land and less water, compared to other types of milk.
🌱 Shop local
Have you ever thought about how far an ingredient has travelled in order to be processed and then how far each product had to travel to get to you? By supporting local companies like us, you are supporting a product with a much smaller carbon footprint because we buy our Canadian ingredients locally and sell our oat milk locally in Ottawa.
Little actions can create big changes. We all must do something, no matter how small it may seem.
What changes will you be making? Let me know in the comments below. And if you want to find out more about our Glass Bottle Refill Program, check it out here.
