We make environmental choices every day whether or not we consider ourselves doing so. Read the labels. If there is a choice to purchase a product made from recycled materials, consider purchasing it. If you have the option of buying in bulk or purchasing a refillable product rather than a new one, make that choice. Some choices will call for a bit of a sacrifice, such as buying cereal in bulk instead of individually packaged little boxes. Shop with an environmental stewardship goal in mind. Remember, every little bit counts. Do what you can, when you can.
