Reduce, Reuse, Repurpose

 I have always felt strongly that the solution to the world's energy crisis is conservation.  Instead of buying plastic with the intention to recycle it doesn’t it make more sense to reuse it?  When starting seeds I use all sorts of containers like the clam shells they sell berries in or solo cups leftover from a party.   They work great and bring new life to something that would most likely end up in the landfill.  We also live this philosophy out on the farm and are happy to repurpose used mason jars, egg cartons, and even ice packs.

At Sunny Cove Farm we reuse glass jars for bottling milk. This significantly reduces the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfills. In fact, our own dairy farm bottles milk in 600 reusable glass jars every week, therefore saving thousands of plastic containers from being discarded in just one year. 

In the farm store we also encourage upcycling of containers.  We sell many things in bulk and you can even bring your own container to purchase soap and shampoo.  Every individual can make a difference by reducing, reusing, and conserving. By choosing to use reusable containers and bags instead of single-use plastic ones, we can significantly reduce the amount of waste we produce.

Do you have extra egg cartons, ice packs or mason jars hanging around your home?  Give them a new life and bring them to the Farm Store open 7 days a week!

These small actions can have a big impact on the environment and help us create a more sustainable future for all. So let's all do our part to reduce, reuse, and conserve!
