Saving Money on Products and FoodPosted: January 22, 2012
Estimates are that up to 15% of the toothpaste and other things we use in tubes are thrown in the landfill. Why? Because we do not squeeze the last bit out.
In your kitchen and in most restaurant kitchens, about 8 to 10% of the food in ketchup bottles and tubes are thrown away. Or when we scrap the bowl when baking or cooking, we do not get it all out.
What to about it? Get a pair of scissors for the bathroom and some slim spatulas for the kitchen.
I am partial to silicone spatulas, they work really well as they are very flexible, are safe to use in heat and last way longer than rubber ones.
Cut that tube of toothpaste or hair conditioner, use what you need, put the tube in a Zip-loc and use it all up.
Better for your wallet and the earth!
