Look for dairy products sold in reusable containers. It’s simple: you pay a deposit for the container at the time of purchase and you are refunded the amount of your deposit the next time you bring back the empty jar, bottle or crock.
This may sound a little old fashioned, but think of all the containers that we can keep out of landfills or all of the resources that can be conserved if we don’t have to recycle them.
Here are a couple of Northern California companies using reusable containers. http://www.stbenoit.com
We like to know if you have found any products being packaged in reusable containers. We are always on the lookout.
