thinking about the purchase

One solution could be to take containers back to the grocerystore (or place where you purchase goods), and have them refilled, like: cereal, shampoo, beverages, petfood, etc. But this would have to entail producers of these products to develop a system like this, adopted by the public, and more...
Also - we need to stop purchasing paper towels and napkins. A hand towel, or handkercheif that you can wash - could be a much more sustainable solution to the problem of messes.
Corporations & large companies should have a cleaning staff that sorts recyclables/garbage. And why should there be a garbage can at every employees desk? Doesnt that seem wasteful?
