The same goes for butter… Anything you can bring from shopping that is not wrapped or wrapped in plastic can always be a good option. A great solution is to choose to buy loose products.


3 - Recycle Correctly

Whatever you can recycle, do it. Normally, on all packages, they already indicate which ecopoints to put them in.
