Buzz Tip

  • This Month’s Tip
  •  Reuse, Recycle
Consider using reuseable bags or ones made from degradable materials. These include oxobiodegradable and hydrodegradable bags, which break down faster and produce less toxins than other types. Find them alongside other plastic bags in the supermarket.
