#CleanCouponing Twitter Chat on Earth Care Features Eco Author & Sierra Club

Clean Couponing is about being frugal with more than money.  If this month’s #CleanCouponing Twitter chat is about Earth Care, what would your shopping choices have to do with being frugal in this area?

I like to save money as much as the next person, and I also look for value in the quality of the food – for instance picking organically produced foods when I can, to protect my family’s health and to support farmers who are doing what’s right for our environment.  I appreciate brands that are mindful about the packaging they use so it creates as little waste as possible.

If you’re frugal with health, you might want to know about the connection between health and clean air, a key component of the cleaner energy movement to stem climate change while building healthier communities.

If you’re frugal with pre-teen and teen values, you might want to ask teacher and author Katy Farber about the motivation behind her new book, The Order of the Trees, which she’ll be giving away during our chat.

Earth Care can also mean avoiding the greenwashing that is rampant in the market today. So, while this #CleanCouponing chat is not sponsored and not designed to sell you anything in particular, we may have room for some honest conversation about avoiding greenwashing.  That, because if you are in #CleanCouponing mode, you have authentic values like caring for your family, being good stewards with the budget you have, and picking products that are useful, not wasteful.

Ready to Replace Plastic Storage Containers with Glass

No wonder I found three opened boxes of pasta in the pantry during my year-end pantry cleaning. The shelves had gotten so disorganized during the holiday rush that I’d reached for a new package again and again, not realizing what we had.  A bag of nuts had to be thrown away because we hadn’t stored them properly.

Because #CleanCouponing means being frugal with more than money, we’re looking at ways to save time, energy and other valuable resources with the household choices we make.

One ongoing goal for our kitchen and pantry area is to eliminate plastic, per information from top environmental scientists of our day.  While some cleaner versions and recycled versions of plastic do exist, we need non-plastic items especially for use with microwaves and dishwashers.  Ideally, all our pantry storage containers would be converted from plastic to glass.  As we find more value-priced, bulk-bin staples that eliminate packaging waste, those clear storage containers really come in handy.
