Eco Tip of the Week


Once you discover waxed paper bags you’ll never go back to those landfill clogging plastic baggies. Do you really need to pack your peanut butter sandwich for a few hours in a bag that will stay in a landfill for over 1000 years, ugh, I mean FOREVER?

Natural Value Unbleached Natural Waxed Paper Bags are landfill safe, non-toxic when incinerated and will not contaminate ground water (or your food) and even better, you can toss them in the composting bin. I can often use the same bag several times- even more eco friendly and cost effective.

Look for them at your local grocery store; if you can’t find them there they are available on several on-line sites. Check them out at www.naturalvalue.com

I have been using these waxed sandwich bags for 2 years now. They work just as well. I remember my Mom wrapping sandwiches in waxed paper when I was a little kid. I also remember my sandwiches
did not "dry out".

They are great and I feel so good to not be polluting by filling up the landfills and ocean with non destructable plastic bags.
