Thanks for these. The same thing applies to pet food Buy it in bulk.I transfer the dry food into a large Tupperware container to keep it fresh. I buy canned food by the case and simply recycle the cardboard packaging.
Most animal treat bags cannot be recycled- they are a waste of money, and do nothing for your pet's waist!

If everyone would have done this a long time ago we would not be in the position we are in right now.

It a very good list but not completely possible. There a millions of single apartment dwellers who cannot buy in bulk because of cost, getting the stuff home, and lack of storage. Once in a while when shopping with friends we stop off for a drink and split up bags of fruit or potatoes. The odds of that happening throughout the year are slim. That's why we live alone. We want to shop and go out at leisure not make it a project where everyone has to be somewhere at the same time.
