Eco Tip of the Week

Lundberg rice taste great, but that’s not the only reason why we love it. Recently they removed the re-closable zipper from their 2 pound bags of rice. This saves about 15% of the material used to make each bag and they note that this will save 35,000.00 pounds of plastic from landfills every year! I never knew those convenient little zippers used so much additional plastic.

So in the future, opt for packaging without the zippers. Use your own containers to store unused portions.

Having your rice (and sugar, flour, etc) in glass containers looks nicer also!
