We believe that living greener shouldn’t mean doing more work.

Sustainability gets more important every day, for both companies and consumers. People have caught on to cutting back and using fewer resources to put less stress on the environment.

In a world where sustainability is becoming increasingly crucial, living a greener lifestyle doesn’t have to be daunting. If it’s too much work, it’s a lot less likely to stick. So, here are four easy tips to incorporate eco-friendly practices into your everyday life and make your day-to-day both greener and simpler.

Partner with Planet Positive Brands with a Sustainability Commitment.

Elevate your green game by teaming up with brands that share your passion for sustainability. Seek out companies with a firm commitment to reducing their environmental impact and supporting ethical practices. Dive into their commitments to ensure their actions align with your values. By choosing brands that walk the talk and speak about sustainability in concrete ways, you’re not just making a purchase — you’re casting a vote for a greener, brighter future.

Embrace Meatless Mondays.

Reducing your meat consumption even one day a week can have a significant impact. Try dedicating Mondays to delicious meat-free meals. Experiment with hearty plant-based recipes like Ground Mushroom Tacos a Cheesy Hasselback Potato Bake, or Vegan Mac and Cheese. Meatless dishes are both environmentally friendly and gut friendly. The leftovers are compostable as well as Chinet Classic ® plates and bowls.

Make Composting Easy.

Turn your kitchen scraps into nutrient-rich soil by starting a compost bin and throwing your plates and bowls right in with them. It’s a great way to save time on doing dishes too. Chinet Classic® plates and bowls are fully compostable. Just designate a small bin in your kitchen for leftover food, like fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and eggshells. When it’s full, transfer it to a backyard compost pile or a community composting facility. You’ll divert waste from landfills while creating a natural fertilizer for your garden.

Consider a Product’s Past and Future.

Before making a purchase, pause and consider its environmental impact. Opt for products that are made from renewable sources like Chinet Comfort® cups, which are made from 80% renewable material, or Chinet Classic® recycled clear cups, which are made from 100% recycled plastic. Also, think about where the product will end up after its use. Products like Chinet Classic® plates and bowls can compost naturally rather than living in a landfill.
