Are you tired of seeing plastic packaging on everything you buy? Are you already doing your part, but wish produce suppliers would try harder, too? If they aren’t making the right changes on their own, here’s how we can show them. By choosing alternatives to plastic-encased goods that are better for us and our planet.
