If you have ever put your food in a plastic container to keep it fresh, then youâ€™ve already done your part to save the earth. Itâ€™s a simple solution that saves you money and you might not even know it.
Itâ€™s the famous Tupperware burp and itâ€™s not your motherâ€™s Tupperware anymore. A company thatâ€™s been around for 60 years has new ways to go green and save green.
â€œWe were green when green wasnâ€™t cool,â€ says Lisa Cox a local Tupperware director.
Boxes, cups and shopping bagsâ€¦just a few of the many â€œgreenâ€ things you can get at your local Tupperware party.
â€œTupperware is a wrapper you use a lifetime. Itâ€™s not something you use once and throw away,â€ explains Cox.
Lisa has been selling Tupperware for nearly seven years. She says it comes as second nature when thinking about saving the environment.
â€œIf you change over to a commuter mug versus Styrofoam cups in just a yearâ€™s time, you can save 16 pounds of trash.â€
Tupperware even makes towels now!
â€œIf every household only reduced the paper towels by one roll per year, that would save half a million trees.â€
Cox says people who buy Tupperware may not realize the savings theyâ€™re getting. The average family throws away over a thousand dollars in food every yearâ€¦but they donâ€™t have to.
â€œWith our tumblers and our sports bottles, your average consumer spends 300 dollars a year in water bottles and 90 percent of those do not get recycled.â€
