Examine the packaging
We are all trying to buy more eco friendly these days and that means considering the materials and the sourcing of the products that we buy. But something else to think about is the packaging that the company uses. Does that eco-friendly sweater come shipped in a plastic bag, on a plastic hanger, or padded with stryrofoam? If so, reach out to the company and tell them that you noticed the packaging wasn’t as green as it could be and ask them if they intend to make any changes about this in the future. Companies are usually very receptive to what their customers want so reaching out directly to them can make a big difference in how they operate.
