As much as some of us try to live in an eco-friendly manner, we're still going to generate some garbage, and that garbage has to go into something before we throw it out — a trash bag, which is often itself a piece of waste that doesn't break down in the environment.
So in the interest of spreading awareness of cutting down on garbage even as you're taking out the garbage, consider using eco-friendly bags
to line your trash bin.
There are many greener alternatives to the traditional large, plastic trash bag currently on the market. Many brands of compostable or biodegradable trash bags are available for purchase, and a quick search online will tell you which brands carry it. Amazon online has a bunch that you can choose from.
On that note, think about using more eco-friendly cling wrap to seal up your food as well!
