Why these low-waste grocery shopping items are must-haves for a trip to the store: ⬇️ 

🛒 Reusable produce bags: These can come in mesh, cotton, or other fabrics, and eliminate the need to grab plastic produce bags. Plus, they’re breathable, which can help keep food fresh! 
🛒 Refillable containers: Some stores have nuts, dried fruit, coffee beans, or other products in bulk you can refill in your own container. You reduce waste, and you get to reuse a container you like! 
🛒 Reusable shopping bags: A staple of any grocery run, these bags are sturdy and hold a lot of goods. Bonus tip: Throw a few in your car or bring a “packable” bag on the go for those impromptu shopping trips.

Lawn mower on its last leg? Old lawn mowers do NOT belong in your home recycling bin. 🚫 Take them to a scrap metal dealer for recycling. Search online for outlets or try Beyond the Bin: Link in bio (tip: call ahead to make sure they'll take what you've got!)

If your lawn mower's battery is no longer recharging, do NOT put the dead battery in the recycling. See if a retailer near you has a battery take-back program, or check with your municipality for safe disposal options: http://bit.ly/2Nk9epX
